Climb for Refugees

While a lot of fundraising gets done from behind computer screens these days, there is another way to raise money for a great cause and experience a little taste of adventure at the same time! The UNHCR is organising a Mount Kilimanjaro Climb for Refugees, slated for November 24 this year, and the scout for participants is already on. The trek to the top of Africa’s highest mountain is all in the name of raising money for the UNHCR’s Emergency Response Program, which responds to refugee crises all over the world. Each participant in the climb is required to raise $4,000 for the UNHCR – money that goes directly to helping those fleeing conflict, famine and natural disaster. If traversing ice fields, trekking through pine forests and climbing glaciers to raise some dollars for a good cause sounds like you, then visit the Inspired Adventures website for more information and enrollments.
