Kent Kilimanjaro trek is a fund raising event geared towards raising money for the meningitis research foundation, meningitis is a common house hold name and although many of us have been fortunate not to suffer from this deadly disease a few amongst the masses might have and as such I am addressing people who have been fortunate to benefit from the cutting edge medicines and vaccines and not contract the deadly disease, and anyone who has been unfortunate to have witnessed others suffer (and anyone else who would like to help :D ). The statistics show that 1 in 4 are carriers and it has a mortality rate as high as 70%. Please take the time to help me help others as I raise funds with the Kent Kilimanjaro trek 2019.
(understand how the disease works read here :) )
Meningitis causes swelling protective layers of surrounding the brain and spinal cord, which causes death in as little as a few hours but however most cases are recoverable only with early detection and with the cutting-edge medicines which have been propelled by acts of kindness such as this fund-raising event. Even those who have recovered can still suffer with permanent disabilities such as brain damage hearing losses and learning disabilities, all of which drastically can change a person’s life quality.
