This is the ultimate Labour Day weekend plan going down at the Kilifi Plantations in Kilifi County. The weather’s picking up definitely, you’re keen for a change of scene and dying to experience Kilifi County in a new, yet unique way.

When is the gig?

Saturday 30th April, at 7 AM

Why go there?

The Kilifi 4 x 4 Challenge will present a stimulating platform for off-road enthusiasts, spectating fans and families to come together for a fun, weekend-long celebration of courage and determination that will showcase the very best of Kilifi.

In addition, The Kilifi 4 x 4 Challenge will donate a portion of proceeds towards supporting the Flying Doctors Obstetric Fistula project in the region.

Where is the after-party?

Here at Distant Relatives, they are going to bring your adrenaline saturated bodies back down to earth nicely after this weekend’s Kilifi 4×4 Challenge.

What is the bigger picture?

The Kilifi 4 x 4 Challenge is working with actress, Pendo Staicey and FDSA to raise awareness on Obstetric Fistula, a devastating condition that affects mostly poor rural women and girls across Africa. It manifests itself as an abnormal communication between the urinary bladder and vagina, which leads to uncontrolled, continuous leakage of urine and/or fecal matter.

The Flying Doctors Fistula Program runs both campaigns and medical interventions to bring back life and dignity to women afflicted by fistula. This year FDSA aims to ensure 600 women receive treatment and we are working with them to make that happen.
