Guess what we were doing on Rinjani mountain

Dear friends around the world,

Did you know I have a good friend and student Ms. Valentina who has worked through innumerable challenges to establish Kechara Soup Kitchen ( Yayasan Kechara Indonesia) in Jakarta, Indonesia?! Please read here of her and wonderful friends’ accomplishments for the sake of the needy. I must say I am very proud of Valentina and I find her to be a very kind, giving, generous and honorable person. She does what she promises and takes NOTHING for herself. Nothing at all. She is a very responsible person and a good leader because she leads by her integrity. I asked her for this write up about the brave and compassionate climbers. I thank the climbers for their great efforts and I am glad you are all safely home. You are all really caring people with others in mind.

Yayasan Kechara Indonesia (Kechara Indonesia Foundation) was established on 15 June 2012 in the presence of a Notary Public in Jakarta. It was then officially registered on October 17, 2012 by the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, Indonesia. Continue reading…
