This August, six South African chefs summited Mt Kilimanjaro, 5 895 meters altitude, to raise funds to feed hungry children and celebrate the 20th anniversary of the World Chefs Tour Against Hunger (WCTAH). At this stage more than R 200 000 has been raised which will go a long way to feeding needy children in disadvantaged communities and will add significantly to the already 7 000 children that WCTAH feeds every day in South Africa
The six fearless SA chefs, that included Heinz Brunner, Martin Kobald, Glynn Sinclair, Manfred Reinhart, Jeff Schueremans and Fritz Flatscher, were probably the first chefs who climbed Mt Kilimanjaro. In spite of many challenges they were facing, the victorious chefs conquered the mountain top. Not only they reached the summit but they achieved to raise funds for children in need.
More interesting details about this noble and brave venture, read in the next issue of the magazine WORLDCHEFS that is coming out in January 2014.
