Namaste

We are so pleased that you are getting involved in our journey – you are very welcome.

So the story so far….

Nepal had two earthquakes in April 2015.

The first with a magnitude of 7.8Mw happened at 11.56 on Saturday 25th April when fortunately most people were out.

Unfortunately, there were a few older people and young children at home.

Many people died along with their animals and stored crops were ruined.

A second earthquake came in a day later and just about finished the rest of the buildings off.

Thangpalkot1 was cut off for weeks from the rest of the world along with all the other villages in this district – the more you get involved, the more stories you will hear.

The district of Sindapulchowk has still received very little assistance from their own government being so very far away from Kathmandu – in Paul’s opinion, they have very much been forgotten.

Paul Campbell has teamed up with his good friend and fellow estate agent Sean Newman, who is based in Rugby and is a trustee of the Fine and Country Foundation. Sean was the inspiration behind this next challenge.

The idea is to not only to raise more awareness to the plight of these forgotten people in Nepal but to raise further funds to support the continuing re-building programme and ongoing general support.

7 trekkers will leave Kathmandu on the 12th October and trek 12 days to Everest Base Camp and back.

You can keep up to date by following the event on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/campbells.foundation/

It’s by no means easy and everyone has been training so hard.

Each trekker has paid for their own travel costs, equipment and personal training which means that every penny raised is going towards re-building these homes.

On the 27th of October when they return from Everest Base Camp, Paul and the trekkers will visit Thangpalkot1 6.6 hours north/east of Kathmandu to see the latest homes that have been built and plan for the next phase.
