Sultan Jessa: Scaling Kilimanjaro to help project started by Cornwall-area mother

CORNWALL, Ontario – Canada: Two Canadians will be on top of Africa next month to help an educational charity launched by a mother of three.

Mom2Mom, a not for profit charity initiated to support education of children in Arusha, Tanzania, will get a gigantic boost when Joanne Marchildon and Laura Bender scale the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain.

The two Canadians have signed up with a trekking company for the hectic and treacherous seven-day hike of the 19,340 foot mountain in Northern Tanzania.
