One of the biggest crisis affecting the world today, especially in third world, poverty stricken countries is the cleanliness of drinking water. One of the worst countries in terms of tainted water is the African Country of Ethiopia. That is why Ethiopian pop singer, Kenna, has asked the aid celebrities such as Lupe to climb Africa’s tallest peak, Mt. Kilimanjaro, in an effort to help raise awareness for the water problem.
Standing at 19,330 ft., Mt. Kilimanjaro is Africa’s largest peak. Most routes to the top take about 6-7 days of hiking and although it is a pretty common amongst avid hikers, there are still plenty of potential dangers to be faced by fiasco and co. Justin Timberlake is also said to be participating. We wish them the best of luck and hope everyone returns safe with a new outlook on the water problems facing the world today.
