On day six, after reaching the summit, one of the team members had to be ‘wheelbarrowed’ off, due to ‘inflammation’ of the knee. Whilst this did not entail an evacuation it was a difficult experience nonetheless. This team member is now in the esteemed company of the likes of Roman Abromavich and Anna Kornankova. Our team leader Juliet took it upon herself to accompany the teammate and had to go from Summit to base in 1 day, enduring a 17hr hike.
Both were sad to miss their last night on the mountain, where the team enjoyed a traditional ‘tanzanian’ ceremony, and received a local name, to honour their character.
Day 7 the team with all the porters and guides were re-united in Moshie, for the last time!
Jubilation as all celebrated victory, reminisced about the adventure and closure came. An end to a victorious week.
When you capture and mobilize the feminine heart – there is no end of amazing endeavors that women can accomplish and be involved in.
Thousands of steps taken, representing the significance of every life rescued from the entrapment of slavery!
At the end of the day – it’s about every day girls, rolling up their sleeves and seeking to make a difference in their world
And if it was just for the one…………..we’d all do it again.
There are orphans to rescue, lost to find, lonely to befriend, widows to love, broken to mend and huge injustices globally that we just can’t ignore!
We can all play our part and BE THE CHANGE!
Here’s to the next C4F climbing adventure:
Colorado USA 2011
Kosiosko Australia 2012.
With much love and thanks for support our adventures!
Continue being an active abolishonist! And be a voice for those who can not speak for themselves.
With so much love Juliet Mayhew and the C4F 2010 Team
