Next fall an expedition of river runners is headed to the Himalayan country of Nepal to combat the spreading cholera epidemic. Cholera is a deadly condition, but can be easily treated with hydration salts and preventative education. The Aqua Vitae Project is an expedition determined to provide remote Nepalese villages with medical treatment enabling them to combat this disease. During the trip the team will also be attempting two first raft descents in the Everest and Dolpo regions.
The Aqua Vitae Project is fundraising to make this expedition a reality. Money raised will go towards the purchasing of medical supplies, expedition gear, travel in the country of Nepal, and logistical needs (porters, permits, food, etc.). Please help the expedition by donating on our website, attending one of the following events, and sharing our mission with others.
