We sincerely hope that all members of the IMG family are safe and healthy during this very trying time throughout the world. This family is no stranger to adversity, as we learned in 2014 and then again in 2015 when Everest climbers and Sherpa were involved in the avalanches and earthquake. It was a terrible time for Nepal and the Sherpa villages in the Khumbu. Through the generosity of our IMG customers and friends we received contributions from nearly 300 individuals, totaling over $100,000, and 100% of this money was sent to Nepal to provide support to over 90 IMG Sherpa families for their rebuilding efforts.
Now we are reaching out again to help our Sherpa friends in Nepal. Their local economy has been totally wiped out by the Covid-19 shutdown of the entire country, and many families are in great need. IMG is making a big effort to support our Sherpa Team in Nepal, including paying salary to Sherpas who had committed to climbing with IMG this spring. Your generosity will enable us to push our support further down the chain to the many unsung people who make such a difference. This Sherpa Team means a great deal to me, and until we are able to return to the great mountains of the Himalaya, they need some help from us.
