Sinai Desert Challenge Fundraiser

Ever wondered what the desert is like....the sun....the people...the dunes...the food...always wanted to ride a camel....well now is your chance....

Women's Aid is running its seventh annual fund-raising safari to the Sinai Desert in Egypt and we need you to come along.

The Challenge will take place from the 16th - 23rd October 2008.

Women's Aid are offering you the opportunity to experience the joys and challenges of crossing the Sinai Desert in the company of adventurous and fun people. Highlights of the trip include living a Bedouin Tribe (Desert Tribe) style of life, sleeping under the stars, seeing the sun rise over the mountains of Saudi Arabia, seeing the sun rise over the mountains of Saudi Arabia, discover scuba diving in the Red Sea, camel-riding through the dunes and having a few drinks and laughs around a desert campfire (spaces are limited).

All you need to do is to make a personal deposit of €250.00 to secure your place, and commit to fund-raise an additional €2700.00 for Women's Aid (€2950.00 in total). Women's Aid is on hand with helpful tips on how to raise sponsorship. This trip to the desert is unique as it has been designed exclusively for Women's Aid. Sponsorship cards and information packs are available at

Women's Aid is a voluntary organisation which offers help to women and their children who are being physically, emotionally and sexually abused in their own homes. We need all the help we can get fund-raising. The more money we raise, the more work we do. So why not go on this trip of a life time and help Women's Aid at the same time.
