A Basics Global team will be taking part in the Desert Warriors Challenge on the 17th of October 2014 in Dubai. The challenge is a 10km course with 24 obstacles which will challenge the strength, endurance and will power of competitors.  We are looking for more warriors to join the team and help raise funds for our housing rebuild program in the Philippines.


The cause


The village of Badio has a population of 450 people, 50 homes were completely destroyed by Typhoon Yolanda last November and many residents are still living under plastic and temporary accommodation.  Basics has already built 10 permanent homes which are now housing more than 40 people and more homes still need to be built.  The lack of proper housing is causing many children to fall sick due to the damp conditions in which they live.  Unlike other organizations Basics is committed to building better housing than the residents previously had ensuring they survive future typhoon seasons.


Want to take part?


This challenge is not for the faint hearted. It is 10 km of obstacles that require physical strength and endurance, if you think you have what it takes then we want you on our team.  All you have to do is pay your entry fee of USD 120 and get as much sponsorship as you can from friends, family and colleagues which will be used to build the much needed shelter for those who lost their homes.
