On January 26th, 2019, together with a group of 16 others, I will be on my way to Tanzania to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. This is a 7 day climb (5 1/2 days up and 1 1/2 days down), organized by Mountain Network in Amsterdam and designed as a fundraiser for War Child. My initial motivation to do this came from the desire to both to plan a special trip and engage in some kind of volunteer work, in celebration of my 50th birthday. But the more I have learned about the values and the work of War Child, my motivation has shifted from self-focused interests to a strong desire to support this charity. In addressing the psychosocial and educational needs of children impacted by war, they contribute to more hopeful futures for both the children and the countries they live in. Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro will be a big personal challenge for me, both mentally and physically, but when I think of the children who will benefit from the money raised, I become even more determined to succeed. Children don’t make war, and don’t choose to live in war-torn areas. Please read more about the work of this charity, and donate what you can.
