Sponsoring two doctors who plan to row 3,600 miles across the Indian Ocean for charity

 Brickendon, an award-winning global management and technology consultancy, is supporting Doctors Adrift in their bid to raise £100,000 for Doctors Without Borders, (Médecins Sans Frontières).

Providing sponsorship as well as hosting a competitive rowathon in Canary Wharfon 7 February, Brickendon is supporting two British doctors, Ted Welman and Jack Faulkner, as they embark on their quest to row 3,600 miles across the Indian Ocean in aid of Doctors Without Borders.  A quest which has only been completed four times in the world by pairs, the charitable exploit is set to last 84 days and raise a target of £100,000.

Brickendon consultants, directors and sales staff will be taking to dry land and rowing in support of the Doctors Adrift quest for 12 hours over the course of a day’s period.

Doctors Without Borders was founded in 1971 to provide emergency medical aid to the victims of conflict by French doctors that served in Biafra. Today the organisation operates out of 24 separate legal associate organisations that, under the umbrella of five operational directorates, manage MSF’s humanitarian assistance programmes across the globe.

The Doctors Adrift crossing attempt is to begin in Exmouth, Western Australia, in April bound for Port Louis, Mauritius. The three month crossing will involve the pair rowing in two-hour shifts, 24-hours-a-day for the duration of the crossing.

Christopher Burke, CEO, Brickendon says: “Doctors Adrift has set themselves an incredible challenge and we will be promoting their cause as much as possible.  We hope our comparable small efforts on dry land will emphasise our support in helping them reach their target”.

About their motivation for their journey, Welman and Faulkner, reflect, “In the UK we are incredibly lucky to have such a comprehensive health service, free at the point of delivery and available to everyone who needs it. MSF helps people worldwide where need is greatest, delivering emergency medical aid to those affected by conflict, disasters or exclusion from healthcare.”
