The Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal faced a devastating earthquake of 7.9 magnitude on April 25th 2015 that resulted in a death toll of over 6500 people and at least 15,000 injured with countless displaced of their homes so far. The massive earthquake has inflicted the nation with people still missing in several thousands and the number of deaths expected to rise as many are still buried beneath the rubbles of destroyed settlements. The schools, monasteries, temples, roads, bridges and government official offices have all been ruined by this devastating hit. The ever-increasing scare of a possible health hazard is also taking the entire nation to a chaos.
Due to the earthquake, the avalanche washed out the Everest base camp killing 20 Nepalese and foreign climbers and injuring more than 200 climbers. We have been busy with bringing back all the injured climbers first as their safety has been the priority prior to bringing down the dead bodies. It has been very unfortunate at the base camp since we had already lost many climbers from last year’s avalanche.
At the moment, the nation needs its every "living" individual to rebuild the stature and existence of Nepal. Realizing this need, the Himalayan Sherpa Foundation has launched an "Earthquake Relief Action Project" to address the needs of Mt. Everest region in Solu Khumbu and some other major zones affected by the earthquake.
With the support of our respected clients, Himalayan Sherpa Adventure has been actively participating in providing education to the poor and orphan students, helping in building infrastructure of schools and monasteries from more than a decade through Himalayan Sherpa Foundation. This organization plans to take all the actions necessary for this project along with the coordination of co-partners Farak Sherpa Kiduk and Mahendra Jyoti Ex-Student Forum for each of its activities as these organizations have big number of members in the affected area who will devote time to take care of the projects.
A preliminary survey team has already left for site visits to observe, collect data and establish liaison with local clubs and forums. Based on support of our co-partners Farak Sherpa Kiduk (Association of Sherpa people beneath the foothill of Mt. Everest) and Ex-Student Forum of Mahendra Jyoti Higher Secondary School (the only higher secondary school in the Everest region), we have focused the project on distributing immediate relief materials with three thematic areas via shelter, food and medical supplies. The foundation will evaluate its resources and potential opportunities to decide on rehabilitation and reconstruction of the houses, schools and monasteries in the village after inspecting the report prepared by our members who are on the ground at the moment. Himalayan Sherpa Adventure has decided to donate NPR 1 million to the Himalayan Sherpa Foundation Fund to start this project ahead.
Asia Foundation and several of our friends and individuals have already joined us in this endeavor. Our team members and volunteers as well are all on the ground at this moment as inspection of the area has already started. With this assurance, I welcome all those who wish to join this effort. We will send you a clear picture of the ground situation and bring you the entire project that we will be undertaking in details so that you can select any part of the project or donate the amount so that we can use the donation for the proposed projects.
“We will give you the account details along with the project report once we have all the details on our hand in the upcoming week.”
We appreciate you for your strong and kind hand in bringing the life of all survivors back to normal in these times of difficulty by rebuilding the infrastructures such as houses, schools and monasteries. We also ask your hand to raise the poor and orphan children to go to schools so that they can lead their life in better condition ahead.
