Reach­ing new heights in help­ing

Friday - - Friday Inbox - MALINI S, SHAR­JAH

I absolutely loved the fea­ture on Maria Con­ce­icao (‘I climbed Ever­est for the slum chil­dren’, Aug 16). I’ve read about her or­gan­i­sa­tion, which gives un­der­priv­i­leged kids from Bangladesh a new lease of life, be­fore, but what re­ally touched me was how she put her own life at risk just so that she could raise some funds for th­ese chil­dren. Hats off to her.
