We provide emergency medical care worldwide to people affected by conflict & disasters.


In February 2017, a British man and an Alaskan woman will undertake a nine month, 5,600-mile triathlon spanning the length of the border between Europe and Asia, from the midwinter snowfields of the Russian arctic to the Bosporus in Istanbul.

‘Following the Line’ is an endurance feat undertaken by experienced adventurers.  It is also an exploration into what it means to be Asian or European, what divides or unites the peoples on either side of the line, and the diversity of landscape, environment and culture along the border that has traditionally demarcated East and West.

"The team will undergo the challenges of extreme Arctic conditions, intense and protracted physical exertion, and isolation in places that few ever visit, let alone in winter."
ir Ranulph Fiennes OBE, Expedition Patron
