Kayak for char­ity con­tin­ues with its mis­sion

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The event this year con­sisted of an­other 40-nautical mile cir­cum­nav­i­ga­tion of Malta by sea kayak, held in favourable weather con­di­tions and that was suc­cess­fully com­pleted in 13 hours.

The driv­ing force be­hind Kayak for Char­ity - Do­rian Vas­sallo and Al­bert Gam­bina - were joined this time by Michael Far­ru­gia and first timers Alan Borg and Re­nato Brin­cat. Re­nato Brin­cat en­tered the record books for this type of event as the first pad­dler to suc­cess­fully com­plete the dis­tance in a surf­ski, a type of kayak that is growing in pop­u­lar­ity in Malta

The re­sult of their ef­forts was a do­na­tion of €4000 to Karibu! Malta help­ing out with this youth NGO’s on-go­ing pro­ject in Kenya, mainly re­lated to the ed­u­ca­tion of chil­dren.

Karibu! Malta is a youth or­gan­i­sa­tion and its main ob­jec­tive is to col­lect funds to sup­port var­i­ous projects in var­i­ous vil­lages in Kenya. The plan for 2017 is to build a school in Mbaoni, a very prim­i­tive vil­lage in Kenya where there is no elec­tric­ity and no wa­ter. In fact, Mbaoni chil­dren who at­tend school, do not have benches to write on; they write on their knees.
