Worldwide Survival Conference Sunday February 12th 2012.

Hi Folks! I just want to let everybody know about the Worldwide Survival Conference, an event being hosted by S4C - The Sri Lanka Community Centre Construction Corps - A UK-based charity aiming to raise funds to build a large community centre in Matale, Sri Lanka to provide jobs and facilities for victims of the 2004 Asian Tsunami who are still suffering in from the fallout of the disaster, most of whom are living in a nearby Red Cross-run refugee camp.


A must attend Conference for anyone who wants to gain more Confidence, learn new ways to look after themselves, colleagues, family and friends at travel or work anywhere in the World.
The Worldwide Survival Conference offers an all-day event from 10am to 6pm, with tea, coffee and a buffet lunch, a fun day and several useful and interesting seminars for the frequent traveller or tourist, whether on or off-the beaten track including:


Tips and advice for working and travelling in remote areas, by veteran globe-trotter Mark Callow of GOMAD.info

There will be an exhibition of guns, weapons and mines from all over the world and a Specialist to give you information on how to disarm them and their properties.
