Dentist couple get trekking for charity

Two dentists plan to swop life at their busy London practice to climb the heights of Mount Kilimanjaro for charity.

Zaki and Dominique Kanaan will leave K2Dental in Fulham, London, for the snowy heights of Mount Kilimanjaro, 5,895 metres above sea level.

The trek is part of the Kanaans’ bid to raise £6,000-plus for Bridge2Aid, a charity that provides vital free dental care, education and training in Northwest Tanzania as well as a community development programme to help the poor and disabled in Mwanza.

On top of this initial goal, the Kanaans have pledged 5% of the money they raise to help the victims of the Japanese tsunami and nuclear crisis.

Having reached the £1,000 mark by April, fundraising is already in full swing, but Zaki and Dominique still need help to reach their £6,000 goal.

Founded in the mid 1990s, Bridge2Aid has brought life changing dental care to thousands of people in Tanzania so please, give whatever you can to this incredibly worthwhile cause, and help the Kanaan’s fundraising total reach new heights for Bridge2Aid.
