Nepal Earthquake

April 27, 2015

To all of you who have been to Nepal and met our incredible team, we have now managed to speak with Kamal who has single-handedly led many of you to Everest Base Camp, and to Iswari who manages the ground operations team in-country. Both are safe after the earthquake, but the landlines have been down and we are yet to get any more detail.

Clearly this is a devastating earthquake and our thoughts and prayers go to all concerned in Nepal. We will be donating the bulk this yearโ€™s Charity Challenge Community Support Fund to the disaster relief effort.

If anyone would like to further support the UKโ€™s efforts to help the people of Nepal, please visit one of the following websites:


Save the Children


As we have more details, we will keep you updated.

Many thanks.

    Isn’t it time Charity Challenge launched a trek (an appeal), for Nepal. If you do, put me down Especially if Kamal is leading it – He’s done 99 base camp treks, maybe the 100th could be special!!!
