Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. 

In August 2023 I will be climbing the 4th most prominent mountain in the world, in order to raise £3500 for Amnesty International.


Amnesty International is an amazing organisation that works to free people who have been unfairly imprisoned. Ordinary people from across the world standing up for humanity and human rights. 


Although it will undoubtedly be a great experience for me, this trip is not a holiday; it is a challenge into which I am investing a large amount of time, money and physical effort. I have to purchase appropriate clothing and equipment, as well as buying insurance and covering expenses for the trip. I have paid for the entire trip out of my own pocket so that 100% of the money raised goes to the charity.


The money I raise will be help people like well-known human rights defender, Tran Thi Nga. She was unexpectedly released from prison on 9 January 2020, after serving three years in prison for her peaceful activism. Her release was conditional, based on her agreement to go into exile. Tran Thi and her family have since arrived in the USA, where they will begin their new lives.      

Following her release, Tran Thi shared the following message, “I thank Amnesty International for your tireless effort in demanding for my freedom, I am happy that my family are now reunited and living in peace. However, there are still many prisoners of conscience in Vietnam, I sincerely hope that Amnesty International will continue to fight for their freedom”.
