Please, Help

Dear Friends and Readers,
I am writing to ask for your help to support the medical treatment of my younger brother Pierre Roring. He is suffering from a life threatening cancer on his neck. The tumor is very big and he cannot eat solid food.

We are trying to raise fund through gofundme for him so that we could send him to a hospital that has got modern equipment to treat cancer patients in a big city in Indonesia. Here is the link for donations:
We also ask for your prayer to God to help and heal Pierre in his fight against cancer. You could also help by sharing this message to your friends and other people.
Thank you for your donation and message of supports.
Best Wishes,
Charles Roring

Snorkeling Site in North Coast of Manokwari

Charles Roring was snorkeling in coral reef of Manokwari
Charles Roring was Snorkeling in Manokwari
I went snorkeling to the north coast of Manokwari this afternoon. I went there with a friend of mine to see the coral reef at the beach that faces the Pacific Ocean. I takes approximately 30 minutes ride to the beach and around 15 minutes swim to the coral reef area. It was my first experience to swim in the water. The floor of the sea from the beach to the reef was quite flat.
However, the coral reef was located unusually far from the land. Tourists who want to enjoy snorkeling need extra energy and courage for swimming to the site.
I brought me an action camera Brica Pro5 alpha edition that could take underwater photographs of fish and reef. It was a nice experience because I could see the marine environment in an open sea.

Coral Reef in North Coast of Manokwari
The visibility was not so good because of the waves. From several dives that I did to depths of 1.5 to 2.5 meters, I could tell that the coral reef was quite healthy. There were more fish in the sea grass area at depths of 1.5 to 2 meters during low tide. Seagrass was a safe home for various species of fish. Big predators will not try to chase small fish. They could easily escape through the grass.
I plan to do another exploratory snorkeling trip to this beach to find other coral reef sites that are more suitable for snorkelers.
As a matter of fact, Manokwari has got a number of beaches and coral reef areas that are good for snorkeling and freediving.
If you are interested in visiting Manokwari to enjoy snorkeling, and want me to be your guide, please, contact me (Charles Roring) by email to: or by whatsapp to: +6281332245180.
