18 Mar Vince takes on #NepalTrek2018
In April 2018, Vincenzo, alongside a team of 20 other chefs, restaurateurs and food industry experts from across the UK, will take on an ambitious trek challenge through the Himalayas in Nepal. With the goal of raising over £110,000 for Action Against Hunger to help save the lives of malnourished children and enable them to grow up strong and healthy.
For most, this will be the first time they have taken on a physical or fundraising challenge of this scale – and it will certainly be tough! The team faces five long days on their feet through mountainous, challenging terrain at altitudes of up to 4,300 metres. Facilities will be basic with no access to showers or toilets throughout the trek, and the team will camp each night along the route.
Action Against Hunger has worked in Nepal since 2005, treating children for life-threatening malnutrition. When two devastating earthquakes struck the country in April 2015, we scaled up our work there significantly. Today, families continue to rebuild their lives. We are providing malnourished children with urgent treatment and follow-up care, and work with the Nepalese health authorities to bring nutrition treatment to communities.
