Join us for Kilimanjaro July 2009!!!

A team and I are headed to Kilimanjaro July 12-18 and we want you to join us!

Join us and reach the roof of Africa in order to raise funds and awareness for International Medical Corps and their efforts for women and children in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda. The trip costs $1399 USD (if more than 16 participate then only $1275). The climb will be guided by GAP ADVENTURES. We currently have about 35 spaces available, so we really hope you will join us on an Adventure of a Lifetime that Saves Lives! You have until May 11 to sign up!

All the trip details can be found on this link: http://go.gapadventures.com/GeorginasMtKilimanjaro

Climbers are asked to raise $3,000 in sponsorships to support International Medical Corps’ gender-based violence prevention, nutritional, and mental health care programs benefiting the women and children in these two war-torn countries. With this challenge, empower yourself by empowering others!One of the programs you will support through this climb is the construction of a new reproductive health center in the Congo that will train physicians and nurse anesthetists in complicated gynecological procedures and improve women’s access to quality medical services. Currently, there is only one hospital in the country that specializes in helping victims of sexual violence, leaving many women at risk of not receiving any care at all. In a country where as many as two-thirds of women have been raped, the new reproductive health center is a critical addition that will protect the health of thousands of women and children who otherwise may never have received care.
