Boys Group from UAE to brave Arctic chill

Dubai: Four boys (2 are Twin sons to businessman Salman Chauhdry) are all set to brave the freezing arctic weather to help raise funds for destitute workers.

Snowshoeing across a 120km stretch of icy wilderness over eight days, in temperatures as low as minus 15 degrees, they will put their endurance skills to test to reach one goal — raising Dh500,000 for charity.

The boys, Hamza Chaudhry, Mustafa Chaudhry, Ben Polletti and Mansour Mekan — pupils of the American school of Dubai — will embark on their expedition during their spring break in three weeks.

The money they raise will be donated to Adopt a Camp — a charity run by Dubai-based resident Saher Shaikh — which aims to raise funds for desperately needed supplies for thousands of workers who have been abandoned by bankrupt construction companies. –
