Mo Dewji Foundation proudly contributed to this fundraising event.
On 10th October 2015 Madswimmer made history with the first ever group crossing of Africa’s version of the English Channel – the Swahili Channel. 16 swimmers completed the 31.8km from Zanzibar to Tanzania in 9 hours and 38 seconds; 5 swimmers completed the entire distance.
The swimmers left Zanzibar just after 6 am in the morning. Conditions were good overall except for a lot of jelly fish, blue bottles and fire weed en route as well as massive currents and swell for the last 2 hours.
The swim was conducted under the auspices of Madswimmer.com and managed to raise over $7,000 for Tumaini La Maisha, in support of Children with cancer.
