Jordan Bromine at the Uhuru Peak, Mount Kilimanjaro
In February 2014, a team embarked on an expedition from the lowest point on Earth, the Dead Sea, to the highest point in Africa, Mount Kiliminjaro, “the Roof of Africa.” The aim of this expedition, named Lowest to Highest for Cancer, was to raise funds for the King Hussein Cancer Foundation (KHCF).
The funds collected will help provide additional space and increase King Hussein Cancer Center (KHCC)’s capacity to welcome and treat more cancer patients for generations to come. KHCC is a well-recognized cancer center in Jordan that provides in and outpatient services, clinics and hospital stays, surgeries and intensive care, early detection and diagnosis.
Based out of JBC belief in the importance of supporting the community, we signed an agreement with KHCC to sponsor two rooms in the new expansion. In recognition of JBC’s generous donations, the JBC flag was held by the team at the peak of the mountain and a group from JBC was invited to a dinner organized by KHCC to honor all sponsors.
Below is an excerpt from Helen Al Uzaizi, JBC’s contact person from KHCC who volunteered at the Kilimanjaro event.
“Our journey to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro was a successful one and I was blessed to be among the team members who were able to have made it to the top. The journey was exceptional - hard, challenging, testing, beautiful and life changing in so many ways. I have, because of the wonderful and gratifying feeling, applied to continue the journey with the KHCF to South America next year and hope to be selected to be a part of the team traveling to Peru to raise funds for the KHCC. I want to take the opportunity to thank JBC for your support and generous contribution. You have been so gracious and I appreciate all the help and faith you have put in me.”
