Providing Safe Drinking Water to Ginette Harrison School, Nepal

New Water-to-Go Reusable Bottle Campaign
Here at Mountain Kingdoms we have teamed up with the revolutionary company, Water-to-Go, which has developed a multi-use drinking bottle with a filtration system that eliminates over 99.9% of all microbiological contaminants including viruses, bacteria, chemicals and heavy metals from any non-salt water source. A filter will typically filter 200 litres or last for approximately for three months of daily use. Any drinking source can be used from a tap in a hotel bathroom, to a stream or even a puddle!

Good news from Kerala after the devastating floods
Here at Mountain Kingdoms, we were all very concerned to see the havoc that the floods wrought in Kerala in August last year. We were keen to find a small grassroots charity that would be able to actively assist those affected, and were pleased to be able to donate funds to Kerala Partnership (KP) who were already on the ground and ready to help.
Help Mountain Kingdoms help Kerala
We were very saddened to see the devastating effects of the severe flooding in Kerala in Southern India last month. It is a destination which is very popular with Mountain Kingdoms’ clients and although none of our tours are affected, there are areas which have been truly devastated by the catastrophic flooding.
Worthy cause - Simien Mountains Mobile Medical Service-UK
For the past seven years, Wendy Lovatt and her husband, Brian, have been running a medical project in Ethiopia called the Simien Mountains Mobile Medical Service (SMMMS). They started the project after trekking through the Simien Mountains with Mountain Kingdoms and seeing first-hand lack of basic medical care and health services available to rural communities.
Mountain Kingdoms bake for charity
Last week Mountain Kingdoms had their own Bake Off and helped raised a tasty sum of £245 for the Nepali Children's Trust
The team baked hundreds of small cakes to feed the the 500 runners who took part in an off-road race in the Forest of Dean organised by Rogueruns. For every runner who took part, Rogueruns gave 50p to Mountain Kingdoms for their bakes. The £245 raised was then donated by Mountain Kingdoms to the Nepali Children's Trust who support the Newlife Centre orphanage in Nepal.
