Why it is time to give back to Nepal

Reasons why it is time to give back to the people in the remote mountain communities of Nepal in these times of COVID-19.

Right now, people in Nepal are feeling the devastating effects of coronavirus on their health, their children’s education and their livelihoods. As is so often the case, the people hit hardest are those who have the least.

Our dear friends in the remote mountain communities, who have helped many so generously to achieve their goals, are bearing the brunt of a crisis which no one could have foreseen.

Hear from Kenton Cool, Leo Houlding and Ben Fogle why it is time to give back to the people of Nepal.

Or listen to Sir Chris Bonington, Rebecca Stephens and Kenton Cool express their gratitude to the Sherpa people.

It will be many years before Nepal will fully recover from the impacts of coronavirus – the government simply does not have the resources to fund basic services and kick-start the economy.

Please help us to continue to bring quality education and improved health services to families who really need it in the remote mountain villages of Nepal.

Himalayan Trust’s founder Sir Edmund Hillary said that his greatest achievement was not climbing Everest, but helping the people of the Himalayas.

They need our help now more than ever.
