About the event
What is Paddle Against Poverty?
It's a community event designed to be fun and challenging, while raising money for poverty stricken areas of the world.
This Saturday's event is a 5km paddle off the beaches of Cronulla, in southern Sydney.
Where does the money go that's raised by the paddlers?
Each time the event is run, the organisers select an area of need. This month, the recipient is Mercy Huts in Indonesia.
What is Mercy Huts?
Mercy Huts is a charity that runs not-for-profit beachfront retreats on Rote Island. 100% of the tourism money they make is used to empower local communities living in poverty in remote areas of Indonesia through community development projects, education, employment and training.
