THE STORY:

How We Are Helping

Our goal is to help feed 300 families in the most need. We are targeting villages in the Dhading Region which is close to the epicenter (Specifically; Tripureshwor Village - Special wards 6,7 and 8). Several of our local trekking guides have homes in the region and their local networks will allow us to move quickly and effectively.

The Himalayanwonders team just returned from the Dhading Region of Nepal where we successfully distributed 6000kg of rice to 200 families. You can see the full story here: 

www.himalayanwonders.com/blog/earthquake-relief-in-the-dhading-region.html

We aim to make an additional supply run to the region in the coming week and provide small individual grants to some of our trekking guides who had houses completely destroyed as well as those most in need. All of this will be documented in an additional blog post.

If we exceed our goal we will help more people and if we dont meet it we will still do our best to help as many as we can. 

What You Can Do To Support Us

  • Make a contribution to our crowd-raising campaign. Every amount will help.
  • Share this story on your social networks. 

  • If you want to help some other way send me an email at Davidurmann@himalayanwonders.com and lets discuss the options. 

Why HimalayanWonders?

Currently, international relief organizations are only able to bring a limited amount of supplies due to the capacity of the airport. We are on the ground here and can quickly procure some of the required supplies and get them where they need to go.  I will personally manage the entire process and have worked over a decade in the region and have almost the same amount of experience managing emergency situations in the United States. 

One of the most important aspects of a relief effort is accountability and making sure that money goes to those who really need it. I will post all of our activities and a dollar by dollar breakdown of how the money was spent on our blog at HimalayanWonders which I will update on a regular basis. If you donate I will send the links to these updates in a personal email to you. 

We have already lined up several western volunteers who will work alongside out Nepali team and can help oversee the process and make sure that we keep everything accountable in terms of buying supplies, arranging transport and then distributing supplies.

David Urmann is the founder of HimalayanWonders a Kathmandu based trekking company that was founded in 2012. We employee 15 trekking guides on a permanent basis. Seeing the devastation firsthand our team wants to do as much as we can to help.
