Food Pantry for Climb Kili Staff
Hi fellow Kili Climbers!
I am Alethia Hinds and I live in Miami, FL. I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in December 2019. It was definitely one of the hardest things I’ve ever done as I’m sure many of you will agree. I wouldn’t have made it to Uhuru Peak without the support and care of my Climb Kili Team along the way. My team anticipated all of my needs, guided me through difficult paths, and believed in me more than I believed in myself!
From all of the amazing reviews I’ve read and my personal account, I know I am not the only one that received exceptional care with Climb Kili!
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, there has been an unexpected halt in their hiking season. The guides and porters who helped us up the mountain are now in need of financial support as their means of income has been eliminated.
It’s our turn to take the lead.
It has become increasingly more clear that COVID-19 will have a lasting impact on the travel and tourism industry.
If you are able to, I am asking you to participate in a campaign to create a food pantry for the Climb Kili staff in Tanzania.
This way, they can be supplied with the staples they need most.
Even a $10 USD donation will go a long way to support the life of our friends in Tanzania. To put this in perspective $10 USD can purchase ALL of the following:
1 kg (2.2 lbs) Rice
1 kg (2.2 lbs) Maize flour
1 kg (2.2 lbs) Dried beans
4 loaves of Bread
2.3 kg (5 lbs) of Potatoes
All of the money raised on this platform will go directly to the fund to purchase the aforementioned items and they will be safely and equally distributed to the staff in Tanzania.
With the support we receive from these contributions we do a small part to ensure our friends can sustain for a little longer, hopefully until tourism and travel begin again.
Your support will mean the world.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Here’s a video of our staff receiving their first donations!
