• First female mountaineer to climb 15 of the highest peaks across MENA region in 30 days 
• As a partner, DHL Express will provide logistics services and on-ground support in each country 
 
Dubai, 09 September 2019:  DHL Express, the world's leading international express services provider, has announced a partnership with Caroline Leon, a pioneering mountain climber who is the first woman to attempt to climb 15 of the highest peaks in the MENA region, totaling around 40,000M in height, in just 30 days. 
 
DHL Express will provide logistics support to Caroline as she travels through the region as well as offer on-ground support in each country. This initiative reflects DHL's commitment and passion to connect the world and support individuals with extraordinary abilities in various fields.
Caroline is an inspirational woman with tremendous dedication and passion. She represents DHL's core values, including speed, passion, a pioneering spirit, and a never-say-die attitude in the face of adversity.
 
CEO of DHL Express in the Middle East and North Africa, Nour Suliman commented: “We are delighted to support Caroline on this adventure – she has incredible grit and passion, and is continuously looking to conquer new frontiers. Her remarkable strength of character and can-do attitude resonates with our brand values and she is an inspiration to us all at DHL. We send her our best wishes, and we will be providing her all the support she needs.”
 
“I am thrilled to embark on this adventure – trekking up every peak in the Middle East is a psychological, physical and mental feat. After almost a decade of working and living in the region, I have found it to be incredibly intriguing, and I would like to show people its real beauty. I believe we are only bound by the limits we set on ourselves”, said Caroline. “I am delighted to partner with a global company like DHL that believes in my dream journey. I am looking forward to developing an ongoing relationship with the leading logistics brand to celebrate the achievement upon my return.”  
 
In 2015, Caroline survived a life threatening rock-climbing accident, after falling over seven meters from an outdoor climbing wall.  After two years of healing and rehabilitation, Caroline is ready to attempt this incredible feat, to demonstrate what the tenacious human spirit is capable of and to discover the beauty of the Middle East. She will also use this opportunity to raise funds for a charitable foundation.
