Help for Nepalese Guides and Porters

51847844_160253223769449_r.jpegIn March, we met the warm and welcoming People of Nepal through a trekking company called Adventure Himalayan Travels and Treks. The guides and porters rely entirely on tourism to provide for their families. 

The pandemic has decimated the entire trekking season for at least a year. For the guides, porters, and communities through the Himalayans, this is the only source of income. The people in Nepal do not receive stimulus checks, unemployment checks, or paycheck protection programs.

It's heartbreaking to hear how the kind people of Nepal can barely survive in difficult times like this. The season, already cancelled during spring and most of fall means meager, if any funds, to support the basic necessity of food and electricity for their families during winter.

We understand it's a difficult time for everyone right now and we're all facing various financial difficulties on our own. Anything you can contribute will be greatly appreciated, however small or big.
