Reaching new heights in helping
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.
