Adventurer/mountaineer Wilco van Rooijen, ambassador of the 4 Smiling Faces Foundation since the beginning of 2018, has made an impressive attempt in April/May 2018 to climb the 8,586-meter high mountain Kangchenjunga in Nepal. As the first Dutchman and without using extra oxygen Wilco wanted to reach the top of the world’s third-highest mountain. Due to the extremely bad weather conditions and illness of a teammate, the expedition stopped prematurely.
As an ambassador, Wilco wants to draw attention to the vulnerable children in Nepal. Just like us, Wilco wants to offer them a bright future, and a follow-up study after secondary school is the gateway to a promising and independent future. That is why the proceeds from his activities are spent on scholarships for children that have no one to fall back on.

Man does not need a quiet existence, but a challenge for which he must develop his capacities and fight. And if someone has to fight for it, then it’s the children supported by Helping Hands 4 Smiling Faces. And I really like to fight with them.
(Wilco van Rooijen)
