THE MOROCCAN ROAD TRIP 2010

The Charity


Please support Mercy Corps through our adventure

We chose Mercy Corps as our charity of choice for The Moroccan Road Trip 2010. The Mercy Corps were our primary charity on The Mongol Rally 2007 and also on The Saharan Rally 2009. You had helped us raise in excess of £2000. The Mercy Corps have always been very supportive and provided us with charity material as needed. We're always really impressed with their projects around the world and wished to show our continued support to their projects. Thank you to all those who continued to support us and help us raise a further £1,100 for Mercy Corps!

One of Mercy Corps' activites during 2010 was helping Haiti earthquake surivors recover from the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Port-au-Prince.
