Just another quick update – this evening I fly out to Pakstan, so I'm madly packing. We got back from a lovely couple of weeks walking in the Azores on Sunday, but our suitcases only arrived yesterday! Now I'm just repacking the suitcase and heading off again – watch this space for more insightful commentary and fascinating pictures of my work in Pakistan, or something like that anyway. See you there!
Just a quick update. Due to visa restrictions now reintroduced by the Pakistani High Commission, I can only go to Pakistan for a month, so at least I'll have some time to spend at home. I'll be going out on the 13th July, and coming back on the 11th August.
Thanks again to everyone who has sponsored me – I have raised over £500 so far, less than £300 to go!
I'll be on holiday for the next couple of weeks, so don't expect to get a reply from me if you email me!
Thanks a lot to all those who have contributed – thanks to your generousity, I have raised £331 including promises so far, which is really great! If you've promised me money, but don't see me until I get back from Pakistan, don't worry, I can collect the money from you then. In the meantime, keep an eye on this blog to find out what's going on!
The earthquake in Pakistant in October 2005 was really devastating (7.6 on the Richter Scale), killing 70,000 (half of the children) and making 3 million homeless. I will be going out the the area to join a small Salvation Army team to help in the permanent reconstruction effort. I will be in Pakistan from around the middle of July to the middle of September. I will be given board and lodging while I'm out there, but to get there I have to pay for a flight (up to £600) and vaccinations/medication (around £200). To sponsor me for the cost of getting to Pakistan, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your Name, Address, E–mail address and amount, I'll contact you to arrange payment. If you would like to know more about what I'm doing, watch this blog! To see an introduction to my upcoming trip to Pakistan, with maps, photos and a sponsorship form, email me. The file is big though (12.5MB), but the text of it I will post as a separate entry next. I may also be able to upload the maps and photos to the gallery. Thank you!
