The tenth team of Kilimanjaro Challenge Malta have left the country to embark on Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa.  For the past ten months, the team have been preparing physically for the challenge ahead.

The team is expected to start the ascent on 8th January and it is expected to reach the peak by 14th January.  18 members will be embarking on the challenge this year:   Brian Warrington, Steffie Cassar Torregiani,  Keane Cassar, Mark Lupi, Tisa Fenech,  Manuel Galea, Kristina Mifsud, Nathan Mercieca, Mario Saliba, Therese Bonnici,  Andre Gauci, Sarah Vella, Daniel Sammut, Lorna Grech,  Mario Morana, Annalise Meli, Joan Ann Mallia and Roderick Mallia.

In the past year,  €65,000 have been collected for a kindergarten in Jemu,  Ethiopia – a school which will host over 120 children , providing them with education and a meal a day.  The project is being coordinated by Moviment Gesu fil-Proxxmu.  The cheque was presented to Fr George Grima at the airport.  The team will be inaugurating the project in Ethiopia, following their expedition on the mountain. This year, the project is being named after Chris Criminale, a KC 8 member, who sadly passed away in 2015.

The team is expected back in Malta on 29th January.
