Hi everyone, I'm off to Mongolia in September to help raise funds for the CNCF. I have always been very interested in the foundation and through them have sponsored a boy since 1999 who graduated as a doctor two years ago and I'm now sponsoring a little girl who is eight.
Our challenge will be to hike (up to 2600m), mountain bike and horse ride over 265km through the central plains of Mongolia, camping along the way. At the end, we get to meet the children supported by the foundation, and I will meet my little sponsored girl! I'm already planning what I will knit for her...
We pay for our own flights and a small portion of the sponsorship helps cover our food, bikes, horses, local transport and accommodation while there. Everything else goes directly to the foundation. The target is just over 4000 Euro, so the challenge begins.
The CNCF is an amazing foundation which since 1991 has helped over one million children and families in desperate need.
Please help in any way you can, big or small, and spread the word to families and friends who would be willing to help.
Thank you very much, Aoife
