Spirit of Malabo at EG Mission in New York City
14 September 2016 | Manhattan, New York
The Spirit of Malabo ventured out of the Gateway Marina in Brooklyn to the House of the Lord Church that's led by Rev. Dr. Herbert Daughtry, long time supporter of the Goree Challenge on Tuesday.
Afterwards, Spirit of Malabo made its inaugural visit to The Permanent Mission of Equatorial Guinea to the United Nations. After Victor Mooney's closed meeting with H.E. Ambassador Anatolio Ndong Mba and senior diplomats, the group went outside to see the Spirit of Malabo up close.
Spirit of Malabo is on standby to be donated to the United Nations as a gift from the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, Head of State, Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, as a symbol for the fight against AIDS.
"If we are going to reach an AIDS-free generation, it's going to take partnership, integrity and perseverance", said Victor Mooney.
On his fourth try with three failed attempts, which nearly cost his life on multiple occasions, Mr. Mooney successfully rowed across the Atlantic Ocean and eventually arrived at New York's Brooklyn Bridge.
"You are never alone", Mooney added.
