We are very pleased to have this quarter sponsored a remarkable lady on a fund raising trek through Nepal. Ms. Gwenda Walters is a palliative care nurse who works at St. Christopher’s Hospice in London. The 70 year old lady organized the trek in order to raise money for International Needs.
Gwenda said ‘It was a truly worthwhile adventure. We are extremely grateful to our guides, and all the kind locals we met who helped make this trip so unforgettable, and I know that the 4,000 pounds we managed to raise, thanks to the contributions from friends and family will really help International Needs continue to make a difference in the lives of those we visited.’
Navarino provided an Inmarsat Isatphone and airtime for Gwenda to stay in touch with her friends and family during the trip through the vast range of remote hills and mountains. Although Gwenda had never used a smartphone or even a tablet before, with a little training from Navarino’s Christian Vakarelis in London before setting off she was able to make and receive calls and text messages throughout the trip.
