Do you want to embark on an adventure with passion and purpose?

Join us for our Borneo Sandakan Death March & Mount Trusmadi Challenge on the 6th September 2024.
*Full Details here.*
An epic challenge in equatorial Borneo, trekking the route taken by Australian and British POWs which has become known as the Death March, and finishing with a summit of Mount Trusmadi.

"This is a unique expedition. We are accompanied by Tham Yau Kong, a highly respected jungle trekker who identified the route and will share the history of the marches as we go, giving us a unique insight. Trusmadi at the end is a tough old mountain, but a fitting end to this challenge. -KATE"

Trip Highlights

  • Trek a historic route, learning from an expert about the brave, heroic and ultimately tragic Australian and British Prisoners of War, captured by the Japanese in World War II.
  • Pay homage to them, and to all who serve today, by digging deep to summit Mount Trusmadi, Borneo's second highest mountain, and arguably a tougher summit than Mount Kinabalu.
  • Learn about the wonderful jungle flora and fauna as you trek.
  • Understand local culture and sample delicious food while staying in traditional guesthouses and a Borneo longhouse.Faith in Families want Swansea City to be a great place for everyone to work, live, grow and play. We want every child to have not only the chance to be their best but the opportunity to do so – whether that is to play football, cook amazing meals, create the best new hairstyle, be the most compassionate nurses, the next future politicians or business leaders in our city.


Faith in Families has a Vision where Swansea will be a city where every child can reach their full potential. Every child will feel safe and feel valued.

Our cultures is to promote, instil and demonstrate our values of CARE:
Compassion, Aspiration, Respect, and Empathy.

Our Mission is to build brighter futures rooted in our communities across Swansea, we nurture growth, cultivating fairer opportunities for all, especially during childhood. As Childhood happens once in a lifetime and cannot be re-lived.
