Pakistan is home to some of the highest peaks in the world. Every year, thousands of adventurers come to Pakistan to climb these mountains. Without the help of local climbers, guides and porters, these expedition would never succeed. While these privileged climbers go back to celebrate their success with their big sponsors, the local climbers who were the reason behind that success are left almost empty-handed. Furthermore, in case of injury or death, these climbers or their families do not get any insurance compensations. In case of death some "lucky families" get a compensation of 150,000 PKR. That's the price that has been set for their lives - less than a $1000.
We have been working to support the Mountain communities since 2019. For the first year, it was just about supporting the families of deceased mountaineers. However, in 2020 we expanded our project and gave it the name of "Value of life." Now, we are not only creating awareness to the challenges and problems faced by the local porters and climbers , but are also actively helping, supporting and empowering the Mountain communities in many different ways:
and much more. We have been able to do all that with the generous support of our donors.
Let's keep the good work going.
Let's sing for our unsung heroes.
Let's give value to these precious lives.
Before it is too late...
