To put it bluntly this trip was born out of a thirst for adventure rather than altruism.
However I’m going through a continent that has seen far more than its fair share of hardship and it would be awful to travel through these countries without trying to help in some way.
I’ve chosen to focus on Malaria. Whilst its a disease that nearly half the worlds population is at risk from, 90% of deaths are within Africa. Every minute a child dies from this disease. I’m hoping to use this blog to raise awareness and money to help fight the bastard.
I’ve set up a JustGiving website that can be reached here
