2015 Himalayan Earthquake • Nepal Recovery Update

Himalayan High Treks Nepal relief donation program is offering direct aid to our staff, schools and damaged villages in this time of need. Over the last year, many of you have directly supported and contributed to our Nepal Relief Fund, raising over $20,000 in donations! Your support is transferred directly into the local community to provide emergency shelters, temporary classrooms and even donated trekking gear to many who have lost their homes in some of the most remote terrain on Earth. If you would like to help in this grassroots effort, your contributions remain desperately needed. Please consider a donation.

We have distributed aid to small, isolated villages and people that other organizations never reached. At first, we focused on providing temporary shelters and distributed hundreds of tarps and tents. One early achievement was to create a temporary school in remote Dhikure Village, at 9,000 feet. The school was made from five, extra tall, 10' x 10' dinning tents and tarps. More recently, we were able to fund a reconstruction of Lumsa Gompa which now serves as a community center as well as a Buddhist temple. Going forward, we are looking at ways to support tourism recovery.

HHTs first transfer of donated funds reached Nepal on May 4, 2015, less than 10 days after the initial earthquake. We are grateful that our staff is safe, though everyone has suffered property damage and loss of wages due to canceled treks. HHT was able to help put them to work helping others in greater need. A slow recovery continues, thanks to your generosity! Our fund is providing direct community support to those in need and we are so grateful to each of you for helping make our humble effort possible. Thank you!
