MGI Vision Chartered Accountants, a member of our MGI Middle East & North Africa region, has just completed a climb to the highest point in Africa to raise money for a valuable local charity.

The Oman Cancer Association (OCA) recently gathered a group of volunteers to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, with the objective to raise funds for its mobile mammogram unit, which travels around the country offering free breast cancer tests for women aged 40 and over.

MGI Vision Chartered Accountants supported the project by raising $20,000, which included a donation from the firm itself. The firm also approached some of its clients to educate them about the project and its far-reaching benefits to society, offering to display the banner of those clients that contributed more than $3,000 to the cause at the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Piyush Thakkar from MGI Vision Chartered Accountants was one of the 20 volunteers who attempted the climb, which took seven days. Only 15 made it to the Uhuru Peak successfully, with Piyush saying: “The hike was tough - especially trying to cope with the altitude sickness - but it was the most satisfying thing that I have ever done in my life”.

And here's the photo of MGI Vision at the top of Africa!
