So far, all their needs for bottled drinking water have been provided by passersby.

“My father told me, the way to pursue your dream is first to take a round-the-island trip,” Lin said.

On checking its Website he found that the Sunshine Foundation provides donation boxes for fund-raising and to kick-start their charity drive his parents donated their store receipts.

During their walk, the pair’s shoes wore out and they had to buy new ones.

When the wheels on their handcarts broke, they fixed them themselves.

On reaching Taipei on Thursday last week, patient’s under the care of the Sunshine Foundation presented Lin and Lai with a certificate of appreciation, but trying to play down their efforts, Lai said: “They should not make a big deal out of it.”
