Good news from Kerala after the devastating floods

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.

Some of our clients also generously donated to Kerala Partnership, and along with our donation, we are delighted to learn that KP have been able to engage builders to re-build the home of Suma, a widow living alone .Her house was originally made of mud bricks and was completely washed away when the nearby river broke its banks and flooded the surrounding land.

As you will see there is quite a difference to the pile of corrugated iron which was all that was left of Suma’s house to the new more robust home constructed for Suma. We hope that Suma will be able to move into her new home shortly and we will keep you updated on progress.

A huge thank you to those clients who supported this campaign, and thanks are obviously due to KP who initiated this vital work.

Donations can be made direct to the charity by visiting:

Wilderness Lecture with Helen Sharman

The Wilderness Lectures are a much-loved Bristol tradition spanning some 34 years. After a year out in 2020 they made a welcome return this month with one of the best lectures ever delivered by Helen Sharman, Britain's first astronaut. Helen enthralled a sell-out audience with stories, anecdotes and fascinating details of the time she spent training and aboard the Russian space station back in 1991. Helen is pictured here with our MD, Steve Berry, one of the three founders of Wilderness Lectures.

The next lecture takes place on December 9th and will be given by world famous climber, Peter Habeler. Some tickets should be available on the door. For further information visit Wilderness Lectures
