After the devastating earthquake in Nepal in the spring of 2015, friendly carriers and guides from the BERIE team lost their lives. By spontaneous donations and the lecture in Lohn/sh in November 2015 we were able to directly support 5 of the widows of the affected persons. I have personally handed the amount to the women and their children in the presence of the participants of a trekking tour.
My partners in Kathmandu, Chhuldim Sherpa and Tamding Sherpa have set up a fund to provide further support.
The children can thus continue to attend school and have a help for the basic care of their needs even without their fathers.
