Trek to Machu Picchu for HIV/AIDS

Graham Robson December 6, 2015

Join a team trek to Machu Picchu to support an extraordinary HIV/AIDS charity!

Machu Picchu

Sussex Stop AIDS is organising a challenge trek of Machu Picchu to support the charity AiDS Orphan UK Trust – and help them expand upon the vital services they provide to some of the most vulnerable in society worldwide.

With an estimated 25 million children having lost one or both of their parents to an AIDS related illness – this is the largest unrecognised humanitarian disaster in the world.

Supporting children in the third world who have fallen victim to HIV/AIDs, AIDS Orphan funds orphanages and Elimination of Mother to Baby Transmission projects around the world.

The once-in-a-lifetime trip will follow in the footsteps of pioneering 20th century explorers. You will leave the bustling colonial town of Cuzco, wind up through quiet tracks in the shadows of the High Andes and reach the spectacular ruins of the ancient city of Machu Picchu! Then you have 6 days of free time to explore the best that South America has to offer.

Organiser are hosting an information evening at the University of Brighton Grand Parade campus on Tuesday, December 8.

Meet in the main reception for an informal meet and greet, then go to Room 203 in the nearby Circus Street building where you will be given a complete rundown of the trip and how to go about fundraising, the support you’ll receive and how much of a difference this fundraising challenge event will make.

The CEO of AIDS Orphan, the charity’s fundraising coordinator and a rep from Rare Adventures will be speaking – and very happy to answer any of questions!

If embarking on a new adventure to the incredible Lost City of the Incas with some great people to support a worthwhile HIV/AIDS charity sounds like something you’d be interested in – what are you waiting for?

Places are limited so don’t miss out! You DON’T have to be a student – or even live in the UK.
