All children deserve a childhood beyond the stigma of poverty and abuse, with access to good education. Luckily I found Iran's Children Charity which is both registered in UK and Iran to help me make a small difference. ICC has been doing fantastic work for children in Iran and have delivered donors money, directly to those that most need it, for the last 8 years.
My challenge was a 3000km Solo Trek from Qeshm in the Persian Gulf to Gorgan on the Caspian Sea. The aim, to raise money to support ICC's work in support of various children NGOs throughout Iran.
For my part, I planned, financed and completed a distance of 3,000 km, crossing deserts and mountains en route. My challenge started on 10th October 2016 and finished 101 days later in February 2017.
All the funds raised has already been distributed to remote children care homes and charity centres along the route, for their education and sports facilities. ICC has already completed over 20 projects, but there are few unfinished projects that needs your generosity to be implemented.
You can donate a lump sum or sponsor me per km. My route took me through the towns and cities listed below and my progress was updated on my Facebook page as well as Iran's Children Charity Facebook page.
My trek took me through - Bandar Abbas - Hormud - Lar - Joyum - Jahrom - Shiraz - Shahreza - Broujen - Shahreh Kord - Isfahan - Kashan - Delijan - Saveh - Karaj - Tehran - Firooz Kooh - Ghaemshaahr - Babol - Sari - Behshahr - Aliabad - Minoodasht - Gonbad - Bandar e Torkaman - ending in Gorgan.
