Watching the sun come up over the East Africa Plains from the highest point on the continent was a truly awe-inspiring and humbling experience that will stay with me for my entire life. Getting to that point and knowing that I've also raised funds for CARE have undoubtedly made this the most worthwhile thing I've ever done.' Kilimanjaro Trekker - Stuart Munday

CARE’s work in Tanzania
CARE has been working in Tanzania since 1994, focussing on health and education. Our poverty fighting programmes address the needs of poor and vulnerable people, especially women and girls.
Worldwide hundreds of thousands of women die from complications during pregnancy or child birth each year, but the majority of these deaths can be prevented. CARE’s lifesaving work in Tanzania has increased access to emergency healthcare for pregnant women, cutting fatality rates by an incredible 30-50%. For example in Gamgajiga village, a rural village in Tanzania, if women needed emergency care they had to be carried by men for several miles to the nearest medical centre. It would often take several hours which was too long and the women would die on route. But that has changed since CARE helped the village buy a tricycle to take pregnant women to hospital in emergency situations. CARE also provided training for community health workers to help mothers give birth safely and recognise complications early. With CARE’s help there have since been no maternal deaths in the village.
To give you an idea of how your fundraising is making a difference, £125 could provide a tricycle ambulance to transport high-risk, expectant mothers from rural areas to hospitals so that they can receive quality care. By taking part in Trek Kilimanjaro you will be helping to save women and babies, giving families hope for the future.
