Mount Kilimanjaro

Wessel van Wyk from Smit & Van Wyk, Inc. is leaving on Sunday the 21st of July 2013 to conquer Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in support of Carel Smit a founding member of Smit & Van Wyk, Inc, now based in Australia.

This exciting adventure will not only be to reach new heights, but Mount Kilimanjaro will also be the 3rd leg of Carl Smit’s Three Summits on Three Continents in Three Months tour to raise money for Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia. Carel’s fundraising goal is $12,000 – enough to fund 20 standard fistula operations, restoring dignity to 20 women suffering the shame of this awful injury.
