Following succesful national and international challenges, the Our Charity Challenge team, consisting of Islamic Relief staff and volunteers, have embarked upon a gruelling 320 mile cycle journey from Vietnam to Cambodia.
Follow their jouney below:
After 13 hours of flights, and a 7 hour time difference. We finally made it into Vietnam to be greeted by a slap in the face by some very very intense heat. We were taken to eat, and straight back to our accommodation to discuss tomorrows plan. Also it was Arafat’s birthday :) ... We all went for a walk to acclimatise ourselves with our new surroundings and it was time to get 2/3 hours sleep before tomorrow's ride.
The team has set an incredible £100,000 fundraising target, with all money raised to support Islamic Relief's water for life projects in West Africa, which is currently going through a food crisis following droughts.
The money raised will help towards digging wells, constructing micro-dams and building systems to capture and purify rainwater, helping communities access clean water for years to come
Give water, give life
