Barry Dentist To Scale The Dizzy Heights Of Kilimanjaro For Charity
Barry dentist, Kenneth Chow, is preparing to scale the dizzy heights of Africa’s highest mountain for charity. Mr Chow, 32, will fly to Tanzania on Saturday to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
Mr Chow, 32, is raising funds for Bridge2Aid, a charity, which supports dental projects in Africa and provides valuable resources and training in Tanzania. Mr Chow has already raised more than £5,000 and is hoping to get a little more in the coming weeks.
Bridge2Aid has already made a huge difference in Tanzania and volunteers from the UK regularly take part in projects in the country to train dental practitioners and provide basic dental care for people living in rural villages. Most of the people treated by volunteer dentists have never seen a dentist before and many of them suffer from severe dental pain.
Mr Chow has already volunteered with Bridge2Aid in the past and he wanted to do something to raise more money and increases awareness of the charity. Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro has always been an ambition and now the challenge is looming, Mr Chow is feeling nervous, but very excited. After spending a lot of time in Tanzania, Mr Chow said that climbing the iconic peak seemed like the “next logical step.”
Although Mr Chow has never climbed a mountain as high as Kilimanjaro, he recently completed the Three Peaks challenge and has been training hard for the climb.
Mr Chow is planning to reach the summit on the 6th day of the challenge and is looking forward to watching the sun rise and enjoying the spectacular views.
