Nepal Earthquake- Helambu, Solu Khumbu Relief Fund 25-May-2015 At 4:26:40 PM PDRM
Posting this on behalf of a friend, Mal Haskins, whom many of you will also know. He's is over in Nepal with his wife Sophie mobilizing and running a focused relief effort using funds raise via GiveALittle and, quite frankly, spending his own money. Food/water, shelter, and now tonnes of hammers and nails trucked in so far, trying to beat the monsoon.

"The Earthquake in Nepal on the 25th of April 2015 has caused widespread damage across the country. Please consider helping by donating to this fund. Funds donated will go directly to the Sherpa communities and other families in the Solu Khumbu and Helambu Regions.

Initial aid will be in the form of shelter, medicines, food and water as required. Later rebuilding and or relocation will be needed.

As Nepal has quite a problem with communications and whilst most of the coverage of the earthquake has focused on Kathmandu, it is in the outlying villages and valleys where the most help will be needed. Initial reports have suggested that entire villages and communities have been destroyed.

I have been climbing and trekking in Nepal since 2006. The people of the mountains are a hardy and strong people, full of generosity and courage however the events that have unfolded here have left many of them with nothing. To all those who have travelled in Nepal or share a love of the mountains and people, please consider donating."

Back here right now briefly to rattle the can and give a few talks. Venues/suggestions welcome (PM me). Donations also obviously.
