International Disasters Welfare

The Earthquake in Nepal on the 25th of April 2015 has caused widespread damage across the country. Please consider helping by donating to this fund. Funds donated will go directly to the Sherpa communities and other families in the Solu Khumbu and Helambu Regions.

Initial aid will be in the form of shelter, medicines, food and water as required. Later rebuilding and or relocation will be needed.

As Nepal has quite a problem with communications and whilst most of the coverage of the earthquake has focused on Kathmandu, it is in the outlying villages and valleys where the most help will be needed. Initial reports have suggested that entire villages and communities have been destroyed.

I have been climbing and trekking in Nepal since 2006. The people of the mountains are a hardy and strong people, full of generosity and courage however the events that have unfolded here have left many of them with nothing. To all those who have travelled in Nepal or share a love of the mountains and people, please consider donating.

Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Mal Haskins.

“I was working three months in Nepal in 1994, both in Terai region and Kathmandu as well. I still can remember how hardworking, honest and genuine people were, particularly those people living at countryside. They opened their home for me and made me welcome. They were poor, but always willing to share and offer their best for a visitor.”
“This money kindly donated by members of a small gym in St Kilda, Victoria, despite the fundraising event being cancelled. We hope it helps. Keep up the great work!”
“All the best for your continuing work out there, guys.”
