Many of you have asked “How can we help in Nepal?” We appreciate your concern. There are a lot of good charities doing fine work over there, so that is certainly an option for you to consider.
A lot of homes in the Khumbu area have been destroyed, including those belonging to some of our IMG sherpa families. Our IMG team members are currently helping out in Phortse, where many of our sherpa team live. We intend to help support the IMG sherpas who have done such a great job supporting our IMG teams on the mountain, by providing money and support for specific projects. This is charity work on small scale, local and accountable. If you would like to assist, please send a check made payable to IMG and include a note on the memo line indicating that it is for the IMG Sherpa Fund.
We will bundle 100% of the funds we receive, and send them all to Ang Jangbu to distribute to these families.
