|Hello Fellow Climbers!
Ben and I are hoping to get some help from our friends - to help out some new friends.
We've met some Nepalese migrant workers who have been, without question, taken advantage of by their company. We are in the process of trying to resolve some of their issues through diplomatic means. For example, they have been working 12 hour days for 2 months without a single day off. The Omani work regulations clearly state what the regulations are, so we are hopeful that positive change can happen for them.
So where do you fit in? Well, the worker's camp doesn't have anything for entertainment - no TV, radios, books, magazines, etc, etc. And, obviously the guys are exhausted and frustrated. So, we thought that if we could pull together some resources to help brighten their "leisure" time, it could at least help to bring up their spirits.
If you have any old MP3 players, IPODs, radios, cell phones, magazines, books, etc that are just collecting dust, would you please consider donating them???
Please contact Ben at 92750771 and Laurie 95703724.
Sincerest of thanks!!
