Ethiopia Tour 2020

Experience Ethiopia’s breathtaking Simien Mountains with the Barbara May Foundation in 2020 – Join us for the experience of a lifetime!

Support and fundraise for the Barbara May Foundation while enjoying the unique experience of trekking through the breathtaking Simien Mountains. This two-week journey will take you on a spectacular journey to one of the world’s natural wonders. You will be introduced to cultures and landscapes that few have encountered before. In addition to the Simien Mountains trek, you will visit 3,000-year-old medieval castles, churches and obelisks. You will also visit the cities of Addis Ababa, Gondar and Lalibela.

Your discovery of magical Ethiopia will begin with two-days in the vibrant lakeside regional city of Barhir Dar where you will visit the Vision Maternity Care Hospital, the second hospital built in Ethiopia by funds provided by the Barbara May Foundation. You will see the midwife team in action first-hand working to relieve the high incidence of death and extreme injury in pregnancy and childbirth. You will meet many local women and hear their stories about how their lives have been changed by the Foundation and your fundraising.

As an optional extension, you can join a four-day visit to fascinating Arusha in Tanzania where you will visit the Kivulini Hospital, with many additional sightseeing options available.

Have the time of your life while helping most underserviced women in the world.
