Roots Expedition May 2018
by Mark Moore | 18th May 2018
I have been a scuba diver and PADI Instructor for more years than I wish to remember and this week I am in Egypt on the west side of the Red Sea at a hotel and dive centre called Roots Red Sea, south of the town of Safaga. Pretty routine stuff for me, a week of diving in warm, blue seas. But this week is very different. A friend of mine introduced me to an English charity called Deptherapy & Deptherapy Education.
Deptherapy is unique. There are two distinct parts to the charity and the first is Deptherapy, which seeks to rehabilitate UK Armed Services’ Veterans who have suffered life changing mental and/or physical challenges in their service of Queen and Country, through the medium of specially designed scuba diving programmes.
