Trek Talk - ElderTreks Blog


Recently we received an email from one of our travelers. It was a story of charity and doing something kind for those less fortunate. It is a privilege to be in a position to help others because we have an abundance ourselves. We believe this at ElderTreks. We feel very proud of many of our tour leaders who also believe in this philosophy and help us to leave a charitable footprint on places we travel to.

Jib is one such tour leader. We received an email from Nadine and Mo who were on the Laos trips this past January. They raved about how Jib bought blankets for the hill tribes in remote parts of Laos. In addition to ElderTreks’ contribution, Jib contributed personally as well as collected money from friends. She then bought, packaged and transported the blankets to the hill tribes who do not have adequate blankets and clothes when temperatures really drop, which it can due to the higher elevations of the villages. In fact, just days later, the village received snow, and it was the first time that many of the children had ever seen snow before.

Enjoy some of the photos of the hill tribe children receiving blankets.
