Rebecca Davis climbed the tallest mountain in Africa to raise money for our ongoing projects.
We at Jubilee Action would like to say a big thank you to Rebecca Davis, who climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for the children that we support and rescue, raising £4,275 in all.
Between 23rd-30th June, Rebecca returned to the country in which she grew up to take the challenge of a lifetime.
“My father, who’s an agriculturalist, was involved in development projects while I was growing up.” She said.
“To return to my childhood home for the first time in 22 years will be wonderful. And it’s very special for this first trip back to be climbing Kilimanjaro and raising funds for something I feel so passionate about.”
Kilimanjaro, which is the tallest free-standing mountain in the world at 19,340ft high, features lush forests, flowers, endangered animals and beautiful crater lakes, before giving way to the harsh environment of snow and ice.
The trip didn’t just have glorious sights though, as Rebecca faced many challenges on the ascent, such as freezing temperatures and combating altitude sickness.
“My faith as a Christian has directly influenced my choosing to do this climb,” Rebecca added. “I really believe that my faith and life should reflect God’s heart for the vulnerable and oppressed, whoever they are and in whatever country they live in.”
We’re very grateful to Rebecca for such an achievement, as every donation ensures the continuation of our projects to help some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
