This morning, the fifteen-member African Long Climb (AFLC) team began its ascent up Mount Kilimanjaro as part of a large-scale fundraiser for IGHID. The team arrived in Tanzania on June, 29 and are scheduled to summit the mountain on July 8.

The team will be in contact with IGHID throughout the climb, and the institute will continue to post images and updates throughout the eight-day adventure. To visit the AFLC fundraising pageĀ click here.
