During the difficult times of the pandemic, the climbing society of the entire world was put on hold. While for some it meant a season without adventures, for others it meant a year without income for their families. As many of you know, all of the spring 2020 expeditions in Nepal, including Everest climbs, got canceled. Sherpas, who relied on their expedition income, got laid off. These are the people who risk their lives every time to make our climbs possible. These mountain heroes would set up the fix ropes for us, and hold our hand when we make our last steps to reach the summit. Sherpas have always been there for us, and now we have to be there for them. And this is why a US-based nonprofit organization Summits2Hearts and Ukrainian-based climbing company AlpoMania decided to support sherpa families of our beloved Nepalese partner Climbalaya. This fundraiser is dedicated to help Climbalaya employees to pay for their children’s education (Hillary School in Khumjung). The school fee, including boarding is 1500$ (Rs150000) per kid. (The distance between Thamo village, where kids live, and the school is too long to walk it every day). Your donations will be sent directly to schools that these Sherpa kids attend in the Khumbu region. While we understand that COVID-19 hit all economies very hard, these people are now in more need than most of us. Check out ALPOMANIA Everest movie and donate! We appreciate every donation and thank you for your support! Namaste!
