By joining our "challenges" you provide great support to all our projects.
On your bike, travelling gently through the villages in Vietnam and Cambodia, constantly greeted by "hello-hello" from excited children on the read sides, you become a real partner. The Chllenges are a substantial source of funds for Mekong Plus, straight to the projects. But they are also a magnificient way to discover the countries, the remote villages. On a bike you are so close to the people. There is empathy and one understands the villagers, their problems, their determination and successes.
A biker recalls...
A whole family comes forward when we arrive. It is a traditional house on stilts. In the shade the grand-mother lies on the bamboo mat, she is not well but smiles, welcoming. She speaks to me, I do not understand her words but as a grand-mother myself, I know what she says.
