Charity and Donations
One of the aims of the Mongol Rally 2007 is to raise money for specific charities. Teams are expected to raise over £1000 for these nominated charities in order to allow the team to take part.Team Berrow Fellows have chosen "Mercy Corp Mongolia" and "Send a Cow" as our nominated charities.
Close to our hearts is our optional third charity Cancer Research UK for which we want to continue the effort and raise as much money as possible.
Mercy Corp Mongolia

Currently they run the following projects in Mongolia: Gobi Regional Economic Growth Initiatives (Gobi Initiative), Rural Agribusiness Support Program (RASP) and the Training, Advocacy and Networking Programme.
