A 1200 k.m.Walk : Taj Mahal to Camp Hope - 07/04/2017

If you think about doing something good for others, even god will be on your side. A humble person from Portugal who was aiding the camp hope families in making their lives better thought to do something further. He thought to walk a 1200 kilometers journey by foot so that he could accumulate some money for these kids’ better lives. This individual was none other than Pedro Queiros, a Portugese national and initiator of Obrigado Portugal.

Pedro started his journey on 10th Jan 2017 and concluded his journey on 3rd March 2017 from the doorstep of Taj Mahal Agra, India to Camp Hope, Kathmandu in 53 days. He shared his experience that his foot got swelled, been sick, couldn’t get proper shelter, was chased by animals, encountered with risky folks but never gave up the hope. It was camp hope children’s wishes, his friends & family’s blessings that he accomplished his mission and collected an amount of $17,131 for these children.

Pedro was greeted by camp hope children, Dwarika’s staffs, Sangita Shrestha Einhaus, Rene Vijay Einhaus, Shavona Shrestha and his friends and walked with him the last 6 kilometers from Maitighar, Kathmandu to Camp Hope. He was astonished by his wife Ghazal’s presence in Nepal for his welcome. Children’s put khada on him, a Buddhism praying was held in Camp Hope hostel for him. On the other day, Camp Hope children performed some singing, dancing program .Pedro was overwhelmed with all this gesture from these kids. But, we all know he has done something beyond imagination and he will be remembered for his good deeds always and forever. 

Thank you Pedro! or as he likes to call himself ; Pedro Sherpa.
