Climb Take Action~7 Summits Challenge is a campaign dedicated to empowering women in war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo by climbing to raise awareness about their suffering and funds to support their healing. The initiative was founded by Georgina Miranda with the goal of climbing both versions of the 7 summits (highest peak on each continent) and taking action to bring awareness and relief to these fellow women. These climbs are for them! To date she has reached 5 of the 7 summits.
Although there are many humanitarian needs in the world, the case of the Congo, has been deemed to have the worst sexual violence in the world by John Holmes, UN Undersecretary General for Humanitarian Affairs. In 2010 alone, it is estimated that 15,000 women were raped in Eastern Congo.
