Mobile Medical Service - top of the class
The Simien Mountains Mobile Medical Service, a charity which was set up by Mountain Kingdoms client, Wendy Lovatt, is making good progress. The midwife students are at the top of their class after their first year, with six more students due to begin their studies at Gondar University in September, sponsored by the project.
The charity has taken over the running of a clinic at Keyit, in addition to the mobile service which they set up initially. This is great news for people in this remote region of Ethiopia. To find out more about the project see the Responsible Travel section of our website, or visit the SMMMS website.
Mountain Kingdoms, along with a number of its clients, has recently donated over £600 to the Shiva Charity which is continuing its amazing work in Nepal.
At the Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO) AGM this month, Mountain Kingdoms' Responsible Tourism Officer, Julia Sharpe, was proud to be awarded Mountain Kingdoms certificate for completing the AITO Project Protect programme.
At Mountain Kingdoms we are committed to Responsible Tourism and ensuring that all our holidays are undertaken in a way which is socially, environmentally and culturally sound. As part of this commitment we have now joined the Tourism Declares a Climate Emergency initiative.
