Wafa Alkhayal, a Breast & Endocrine Surgeon is another inspirational person to take part in the challenging climb to kilimanjaro. She says that this experience and journey grounded her and that helped her to re-align her life back to what it should be!
The experience and the journey grounded me and I needed that! The disconnect from technology and just enjoying nature and having conversations with people re-aligns your life back to what it should be!
Memorable part: Toilet breaks (LOL!). Seriously though the dancing and singing with the crew!
The hardest was summit push! The reason wasn’t that it was physically hard..It was the altitude symptoms towards the end and mentally trying to overcome it.
- Be grounded
- You don’t need to be on social media all the time
- Appreciate people around you
- Teamwork leads to success
- You can go a week without showering
- Toilets are overrated
- I would say start slow and go to the gym.
- Surround yourself with like-minded people.
- Exercise is better than Prozac and will lift your mood up instantly!

Mawaddah Women Charity based in Saudi Arabia, work closely with children of divorcees, and have taken it upon them to create a safety haven for children of divorcees. Not too long ago, visiting hours took place at police stations. Today, Mawaddah is the legal hub for visits. “Beit Mawaddah” aka “Mawaddah Home” is a safety haven where visiting hours take place; drop offs, pick-ups and more. It’s every child’s right to feel safe with their parent/caregiver, and it’s every parent’s right to know that their child is safe during their absence.
