Many of you will remember Julio Udago, your excellent Kilimanjaro Head Guide. And many, like me, have had the privilege of working alongside him and have struck up trusting friendships. Well, I have been in contact with Julio during the pandemic, checking in to see how his situation has changed. Like many of us, he has had his usual income stream and purpose removed so has been resourceful and repurposed his skills. He went home to care for and help his Mother on her patch of land.
This week he has been in touch and told me that there is still no guaranteed guiding work, so his future and the future of his kids is still precarious. One thing that is important to him, is to be able to give his daughter an education that will enable her to help the community. She aspires to be a Doctor. Obviously there are many more of the guiding community that have been affected, but for now, I'd like to help Julio raise enough funds for his daughter to continue her education this term. Each term costs £300 and the term starts in a week.
Please, if you can, donate to Julio to help his daughter, Caroline and please share this page if you think it will help.
