ASPEN INTERNATIONAL MOUNTAIN FOUNDATION's Fundraiser:

Surf Gravity for Nepal Relief

ASPEN INTERNATIONAL MOUNTAIN FOUNDATION's Photo

THE STORY:

Surf Gravity with the Aspen International Mountain Foundation (a 501C3) is supporting The Mountain Institute based in Nepal. Their most urgent priority is to reach several villages close to the quake's epicenter in the districts of Rasuwa, Dhading, and Gorkh, where they have been working with farmers to grow medicinal and aromatic plants for years. There is little information from these very remote communities, but the earliest reports are that entire villages have been leveled. Some have been further isolated by landslides and avalanches.

With your generous contributions reconnaissance teams will be deployed as quickly as possible to gather first hand information. Starting out from district headquarters and in coordination with our partner organizations, the teams will take emergency supplies and will walk from village to village. The mission will be to assess damage, take stock of what people need right away, and determine what assistance they will need over the next months and even years.

Such a trip would be a four- to six-day walk under normal conditions. We expect it to take longer due to damaged and blocked roads and trails. Time is short--the monsoon season will begin in June, and rural people will need sufficient shelter.

With its long history, deep connections, and extensive networks in some of Nepal's most remote regions, The Mountain Institute is uniquely qualified to ensure that your donation has maximum impact and that assistance reaches the communities that need it.

Surf Gravity and Aspen International Mountain Foundation will be closely supporting these efforts!

It is great to see Surf Gravity collaborating with the Aspen International Mountain Foundation (AIMF) to raise funds for those affected by the earthquake in Nepal. I will be interested in hearing how the Mountain Institute (beneficiary of funds raised) is able to help specific communities on the ground given its knowledge of and experience in the region. 2 years ago
