I just wanted to send you a quick email to mention how excellent William, Bosco, Dr. Sweetbert and Amina were during our emergency! I am sure there were others involved that we don’t know of, however these are the individuals that I came in touch with, and actually I am amazed at the efficiency, professionalism and caring nature right from the start of the emergency call at approx. 4:30am on a Sunday morning! They went above and beyond my expectations.- Mrs Remee Roperia, MD, Shah Tours & Travel Ltd.
I was able to directly witness the hospital care during a charity evacuation of a porter by Kilimanjaro SAR. The porter was transported speedily to a hospital in Moshi which allowed him to receive prompt medical attention. A company representative remained with him until he was finished with his treatment. All details of the hospital were taken care of in a professional, courteous and helpful manner.- Karen Valenti, Program Manager, Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project
