Campaign to Help Families of Sherpas lost on Everest

Everest Avalanche

 

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.  Please donate by following the link below.
