On behalf of all of us, we would like to thank all your guides for taking great interest, caring, supporting, and encouraging us till the end of this most exciting adventurous walk of life time.

Shamjibhai has been the inspirer for all of us and we all would like to thank him for his inspiration and encouragement. Without him we would not have done the walk.

We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Keep up the good work and most definitely, we will join you again, when you organize the next walk.

We all feel a lot better health wise, and your organization has given us something to look forward to. To bring unity into the family and friends, this I believe is one of the great activities, we all should take up in our life.

The three peaks had the most beautiful scenery. It was special for those, coming from London. We all enjoyed the day. The walk was hard but  the encouragement and support from the guides, made the walk that much easier.

It was one of the most memorable day of our life.
We hope Seva International goes stronger & stronger each year.

Best wishes,

Shailesh Patel, London.

Thank you very much for the encouragement. Lots of credits go to the support team.
The whole project was very well organised.The sight of guides/ friendly faces intermittently along the way was very heart warming. especialy at times when I felt almost broken.
This project had some sort of facilities for the whole family. I am deeply indebted to everyone, especialy to the
support team who had to stay on single spots in the cold to hand out instructions and refreshments.
The fruits- especialy the bananaes, including the sweets and water were very useful.

It almost worked out like a day out. Everyone was very caring and supportive. It was more like a family atmosphere. Lots of new acquaintances. At the end of the day the benefits are enormous, as far as healthis concerned. I did complete it mostly because of my mental set up andthe excellent encouragement I obtained on my way. No doubt the joint aches.

I would like to commend the volunteers who this year did an excellent job, lead by Hasmukhbhai. They were waiting with open arms and there to tend to all needs.

Best regards,
Vijay Chandria, Surrey
