Most of you will now be aware of the devestation that the recent earthquake in Nepal has caused to thousands of people. The Adventure Boutique's own Expedition Leader Dr. Raj Joshi was fortunate enough to stay safe whilst on his way up to Mount Everest base camp when the earthquake hit. He has since continued to make his way up to Mount Everest base camp, whilst working in various medical clinics on the way up to help the wounded.
Raj has a close connection with this area of Nepal, including Kathmandu, as he has made numerous journeys to Mount Everest base camp inlcuding summiting Everest in 2006. He has continuously worked with and made friends with local Sherpa families who have helped him in during his treks. He has returned his gratitude over the years by finding ways to fund members of their families in different ways.
As a result of the earthquake, many of these Sherpa homes have been destroyed with their families now struggling to survive. Some Sherpas have lost their lives during the avalanche on Everest too. These Sherpa families have continuously and tirelessly helped hundreds of people over the years make their dreams come true by climbing to the famous Mount Everest base camp and beyond. Its now our time to give back to these families in their time of need.
Please donate any amount that you can which will go towards rebuilding these families lives.
Thanks for your support!
