The year 2020 has already given us enough grief with Covid-19 pandemic but it is still not stopping. In 2019, fires raged across the Amazon rainforest in South America and early this year, bushfires devastated parts of Australia. And now huge fire have broken out at Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania.
Hundreds of Tanzanian firefighters are trying day in and day out to put out the massive fire since October 11. It has been reported that the flames can be seen more than 20 miles away. This deadly fire has set the area known as Kifunika Hill ablaze.
To fight it together, more than 200 university students from the College of African Wildlife Management, located near the mountain, have volunteered to provide food and water to the firefighters trying to contain the blaze.
