My personal message

Back in Toronto after a successful climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro in a record 4 days. Alhamdulillah ! The fourth day, our final 3,500 feet ascent to the summit started at 3 AM, temperatures at - 20 Celsius, brisk strong winds, pitch dark, we were advised just to follow the footsteps of our guides illuminated by our helmet spot lights. Nothing visible except thousands of crystal clear beautiful bright stars high above in the sky, What a sight ! Zig Zagging through the unfriendly 45 Degree angle steep terrain we tried to move forward step by step resting every 15 minutes and drinking lots of hot water (H2O) to get Oxygen in our lungs. After 7 grueling hours we managed to reach the summit "Gillman's Point", one of the three highest peaks of Kilimanjaro. What an amazing sight high above the low flying clouds and overlooking the wide plains of Tanzania and Kenya from an altitude of almost 19,000 feet above the sea level. Finally, it sank in that we are on top of the "Roof of Africa". We spent about 30 minutes taking the pictures and videos, raising the Canadian and Pakistani flags and displaying the banner that this was all done to support "The Scarborough & Rouge Hospital" in their endeavors towards the Midwifery and Newborn Child Care Programs. As a member of The Scarborough and Rouge Hospital Foundation Board, I care deeply about local health care and specifically the Maternal, Newborn and Child Care Program. I firmly believe in "Give to Live". I want to thank my friend Mr. Asif Bux Awan of Kisumu, Kenya for joining me on this mission and for his moral support. I want to thank my lovely wife Shahnaz, my charming daughters for their support and prayers, the staff at SRH and President Michael Mazza for their encouragement. Finally, I want to take a moment to thank Allah SWT as without His will it may not have been possible and to all my donors and supporters as without their generous donations I would not have over achieved my goal of $20,000 and to successfully raise $25,000 for my community hospital. In conclusion, if you ask me if I will do it again, I will say "Never". A real tough challenge, a milestone in my life, a real success story, an amazing experience, and for which I have no regrets but happiness to cherish the rest of my life. Thank you for supporting Scarborough and Rouge Hospital!
