We wanted to know more about Araf and why he got involved, he told Phil ” I’m from Leicester, aged 42, currently on a 6 month career break from work , where I work at Office Depot in Beamount Leys as a senior telecoms engineer, married with 2 kids who have just started university, so it gave myself and my wife an opportunity to travel and incorporate support for the hope foundation in India. We are travelling India until the 26th Feb , when we return back to the UK. During our travels we will also do some work with Unicef to promote washrooms and basic hygiene. Were also fundraising whilst in India for the hope foundation, https://www.justgiving.com/ArafandSabina/ whilst also competing in the London Triathlon next august and raising additional funds for the charity.”
