Everest Base Camp Avalanche 2015 Support

On 25 April 2015 a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, causing a large avalanche which destroyed the Adventure Consultants Everest Base Camp.

Six AC Nepali staff lost their lives in the avalanche and others were injured.  If you would like to contribute to the support of these victims and their families please consider contributing to the Adventure Consultants Sherpa Future Fund. Funds contributed will be put towards supporting the education of the children of these Sherpas and the re-building of their homes damaged in the earthquake. Maila Rai has two children in Khumjung; Dawa Tsering has a young child in Chaurikarka and Pema Yishi has three children in Khiraule.

Thank you very much for the support of these Sherpa families who are affected by this tragedy and thank you for your care, concern and prayers.
