A charity simul on the land below the sea for the planet's highest land

Anish Giri was invited by Renuka Nepal Foundation to give a charity simul for Nepal on 21 May in Petten (North Holland). This simul was a part of the fund raising activities, organized by Renuka Nepal Foundation in order to realize irrigation facility in Yanchok- a remote village of Nepal (home country of Anish' father). More about this project can be found here: Irrigation in Yanchok.

The simul was played using handmade wooden chessborads, specially made in Nepal and imported for this event.

Renuka Nepal Foundation raised a total of €1.321,50 with the event!

Here is some pictorial impression of the event.
