Woohoo - Ngima has just messaged to tell me the first of the money has already arrived in his bank account in Nepal. He sounds absolutely over the moon. Thank you so much to everyone who has taken time to help so far - it's extremely kind of you <3

I've just transferred the next 200 to our account in addition to the 500 I transferred the other day, so on Tuesday (after the bank holiday) I will be making the first transfer to Nepal of 700, straight into Ngima's account.

Thuche che! It means 'thank you' in sherpa language (I learned this from Ngima yesterday).

The lovely Ngima has been in touch. I now have confirmed his international bank account number and on Tuesday I'll be transferring the first 500 ($774) to him, minus bank transfer fees. The GoGetFunding charge and Paypal charges have already been taken. Feeling really proud and very thankful to you all <3

Wowzers, thank you so much to everyone who has been so generous so far. I have been able to deliver the news to Ngima today that we have raised our first 500.

I have transferred 500 out of our business paypal account to a bank account from which we can make international transfers, so the wheels are in motion for getting aid direct to Ngima.

Will keep you updated. Thanks! x

Definitely - it’ll get straight to him so he’ll be able to start rebuilding. He sounds in high spirits. I’ve been trying to use the odd Nepalese word in our messages which has been making him smile :D

Fantastic! I was hoping he wouldn’t have to wait until you get out there, it’s great to know the he will be getting money faster than the aid agencies would have got it there.

Hi, my name is Rachel (everyone calls me Cookie). I recently spent time in the Himalayas with my husband, Dave, trekking to Everest Base Camp. We met Ngima Nuru Sherpa as we were waiting to fly out of the mountains and were struck by his gentle manner and quiet confidence. When the earthquake struck we were relieved to hear that Ngima was safe but saddened that his village and home were destroyed. We want to help, so here we are :)
