London, UK -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/23/2014 -- David and Yusep, two men who started a walk on January 10 this year to cross Peninsular Malaysia, are gaining the attention of people from across the globe. The walk will be a distance of 1100km, taking them from through the whole country. With ‘The Great Walk’, the duo aims to raise awareness and donations for the Borneo Project in conjunction with the Visit Malaysia Year 2014. Sources confirmed that the Borneo Project is intended to protect forests, cultures and human rights of people, who live there, with the help of local NGOs and communities. The Borneo Project also came into existence in order to save the local eco systems by connecting with local communities and defend the customs and surroundings of local people living in Borneo.

When contacted, Faeez Fadhlillah, the CEO of Lagisatu.com said, “We know that travelling has a lot of positive effects that is why we are supporting the cause. We are with them in this walk for the Borneo project in Malaysia. They are supporting not only that cause but also the environment. I hope that more people will join our sponsoring efforts in the near future and help David and Yusep during their great journey.”
The 1100km long walk is going to take the two men to different places in the country including Tanjung Piai in Johor, the Endau Rompin National Park, several kampungs (villages) in Negeri Sembilan, Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh, Bukit Merah, Penang and Kaki Bukit in Perlis.
