The Himalayan Trust has launched a fundraising appeal to help the Sherpa families impacted by the recent tragedy on Everest.  Funds raised here will be matched by the International Avalanche Nest-egg (up to $1,000) and donated to the Himalayan Trust to provide scholarships to the children covering educational and living expenses – ensuring they have a guaranteed schooling despite the loss of their father’s livelihood. The tragedy is a reminder that while Everest has increased in popularity and accessibility over the last 60 years, Nepalis have continued to bear much of the risk involved in summiting.
