Moshi. Kilimanjaro Search and Rescue (Kili-Sar) company has scooped four prestigious awards.

It was awarded by the Mauritius-based World Human Resource Development Congress for good services in rescuing tourists and other people who scale mounts Kilimanjaro and Meru. The company recently launched Africa’s first modern high altitude medical clinic in Moshi municipality. It is the first outside the US.

Kili-Sar is the only mountain search and rescue company. Kili-Sar CEO Ivan Braun explained that the company got the Best Africa HR Award, Best Employer Brand Award, Best Award, and Best Company Award.

“Kilimanjaro Sar is the first institution to provide medical evacuation services on mounts Kilimanjaro and Meru using helicopters and our vision is to make Mount Kilimanjaro the safest tourist destination in Africa; and we are happy to receive four prestigious awards from Mauritus for the good services to our customers,” he explained.

According to him, the rescue team of the Kilimanjaro Sar will consist of highly skilled doctors, nurses and paramedics committed to saving lives of mountain climbers.

“We are an upcoming organisation with a keen focus on helicopter operations, specialising in search and rescue services starting with Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru, committing ourselves to a five minute response time from the minute we receive a distress call.” The firm human resource director, Mr Abdallah Amour, said: “It is an honour and an enormous privilege to win four African leadership awards this year. Being recognised for a job well done is usually a special feeling for winners.”
