Porter & Guide Earthquake Relief Help

Organized by: Ryan DSilva

Ryan's Photo


Most of you reading this know the amazement of seeing a porter carry a hundred plus pounds up a steep and slippery slope at high altitude.

From a distance they make it look easy, but up close, you can see the intense effort and concentration, almost like the only thing powering them up is their will and a zen like calm.

And our guides - with an ever watchful eye on us, a ever present smile and a gentle reminder to 'go slow' when we push ourselves too hard, they made our dal bhat powered treks a delight.

This earthquake has had a devastating effect not only on the lives and property of people in Nepal, but also their dreams and futures - wiped out over the course of a few seconds.

These funds will be split between the porters and guides to do with as they see fit - this could include basics such as clean water, food, shelter, medication, for their family and neighbors. How he uses it is up to him.

All funds will be sent via Western Union to porters and guides as we get in contact with them. Any remaining funds will be donated to a fund to aid in rebuilding.
