HELP SHERPA FAMILIES: SOLUKHUMBU NEPAL
Organized by: Helping Sherpas
EVENT DATE Jun 13, 2015
The recent horrific earthquake of April 25h and the aftershock that followed in May 12th has shaken the whole Nepalese community from Kathmandu to top of the world, Mount Everest. While many many lives and homes were taken in the Kathmandu valley, many homes were destroyed in the Khumbu region of Nepal. People who have lost their homes here have been camping in school ground, green houses or other open spaces. For many people living in these regions, their main source of income is through hotel business. Now they are left with no home and no income. I was in Solukhumbu when the earthquake struck, while every moment during the earthquake was terrifying I feel lucky to be alive but saddened by the whole situation, so I hope to give back to those who have lost everything. As mother Teresa said’ Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person,’ I hope one by one we can collect enough to help these people in need and give them a hope to rebuild their homes back again. Please know that 100 % of your donation will directly help sherpa families in ward no.1 villages of Solukhumbu. Thank you for being kind, your help is much needed and appreciated.
