Kayak for charity continues with its mission
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.
