I recently summitted Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest point and the worlds tallest stand alone mountain. This was part of my personal healing process, i dedicated the journey to all male survivors. I have just posted the blog with some wonderful pictures. www.kilimalesurvivor.wordpress.com It's uses an analogy of conquering a mountain with a journey to becoming a thriver. Please post some comments for other male survivors in Africa on the blog to show them they are not alone.

Letourski and thedudebides

Thank you for reading the blog. Your comments have reaffirmed that I had to tell people about my journey. It has taken a long time to get this far and I'm confident now, I can make a difference to others.

You have done a great deal for your fellow survivors Rees, thank you for creating positive awareness for our cause! Climbing a mountain does closely mimic the arduous journey a male has to go through when attempting to heal himself from the trauma of abuse and assault.

Your efforts are greatly appreciated, much success to you on this and your upcoming endeavors,

Sam

Sam thank you for taking the time to read the Kilimanjaro blog. Climbing the mountain was as like my recovery, it took longer and was much harder than I thought.
