posted on 09/04/2003: 874 views



Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) has announced a 9,000-km fund raising motorbike trip from Paris to Dubai. The humanitarian project, called 'Water', will be undertaken by three men from the UAE, Hassan Al Redha a UAE national, Jean-Pierre Labry and Christophe Renaund, both French. The three friends will set off on April 25 and plan to reach Dubai on May 23 after travelling through 12 countries - France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.



The motorbikes will be auctioned after the ride and the money raised will be donated to MSF. Al Redha, who said that planning and preparation for the trip began last September, added: "We three are passionate about biking. We hit upon the concept while we were having a conversation. We gave it some thought and felt we wanted to link it with MSF. They accepted the idea. The trio will be providing updates of their journey every day on Dubai FM, and will be filming their trip for television. (The Gulf News)
