Expedition idea - spring 2004
Two ambulances, too outdated to be used in
Sweden, were earlier parked in Strängnäs.
12,500 kilometers away in Nepal, one of the
poorest countries in the world, there is a
school which many pupils can not even reach
and where educational materials and medical
supplies hardly exist!
On June 16th 2004, we will embark on a complex
journey with these two ambulances and a jeep
loaded with educational materials and medical
supplies. We will drive partly off the road,
through deserts with extreme heat, passing
snowy mountains, and driving through earthquake-prone
parts of the world. All together, we will
travel through twelve countries before we
reach the final destination outside the city
of Pokhara on July 11th 2004. Our destination
is located 4,500 meters above sea level on
the mountain slopes of Himalaya.
This charity expedition of our own is not
at all safe nor free of charge, and high demands
on the participants and the equipment are
to be expected. But we are committed to help
this school by giving our time and engagement
- simply by doing everything we are capable
of in order to complete our task and successfully
reach our destination in Nepal!
