Relief Efforts for the victims of the Earthquake
Himalayan Sherpa Foundation has completed its first phase of relief projects which was the distribution of food, tents and medicines in the Village of Chourikharka, Solu-Khumbu. Solu-Khumbu is also popularly known as the Everest region. This region consists of many small villages which were harmed by the devastating April 2015 earthquake. Solu-Khumbu has many importance to the locals and as well to the nation’s tourism industry as Mt. Everest and many other 8,000 meters high peaks lie in this region.
