Mount Kilimanjaro Climb - Widows Empowerment Campagin - Iraq
Mount Kilimanjaro Climb - Widows Empowerment Campagin - Iraq
Tue, 2 Apr, 2013

Following the success of the 2011 Campaign by "Walk for Iraq" to empower widows in Iraq, this year two British-Iraqi teenagers (Emily, 17 and Alex, 13) will attempt to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in July 2012! Emily and Alex will be attempting this challenge to raise money to continue the widow empowerment campaign and to increase the quality of life for many of them. This campaign will also help widowed mothers become self-sufficient and allow them to give a better life for their families and children, and to aid the redevelopment of Iraq.

Mt. Kilimanjaro is the fourth highest mountain of the world's 7 summits; it is also the highest mountain in Africa at a height of 5,784m! Climbers will be faced with extreme weather conditions, difficult terrain and may also be affected by acute altitude illnesses; these have contributed to a high failure rate of summit attempts. The two fundraisers, Emily and Alex, are currently undergoing intense training which includes running, stair-climbs and hikes in the mountains of the UAE.



Support Emily and Alex for their courageous efforts to accomplish the horrific and heroic climb in any way possible! A single penny can make a difference. Your generous donations will lead to a significant difference to the lives of widowed mothers and their children in Iraq, and it'll also motivate Emily and Alex to successfully complete their mission.
