    Weʼve raised £1,620 to Support our friend in Nepal, Sunil Tamang, and his family, whose lives have been devastated by Covid-19

    Funded on Wednesday, 27th May 2020

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    The outbreak of Coivd-19 has impacted all of our lives, but while lots of us are struggling with not being able to go to the pub, or sad that our summer holidays are in jeopardy, the consequences for those in other countries are far more devastating.

    This time last year, we were trekking in Nepal with our wonderful friend and guide, Sunil Tamang. Sunil operates an independent trekking company and is completely reliant on the tourism industry for his income. Without the safety net of a furlough scheme like we have here in the UK, Sunil is now jobless and unable to provide for his family - which means he cannot send his children to school.

    His hope is that he may be able to take his family out of Kathmandu to the village where he grew up so that he can provide for his family through farming, however the house there is in no fit state to live in - despite being rebuilt after the 2015 earthquake that devastated Nepal, a more recent landslide has rendered it inhabitable.

    Sunil is out of options. It's reached a point where he believes his family may die from starvation rather than the Coronavirus. The whole situation has just put everything into perspective for us and we want to do all we can to help from afar. With that, we will be running and walking 141.5 km in seven days - the distance from Lukla to the summit of Everest and back again.

    The challenge will start on Monday 4 May, and would love it if you could please support us in any small way that you can.

    Thank you, Frankie and Dom xxx

      Sunil, all the best to you and your family. You were a constant support to me on the ECB trek in 2017. Thank you. Take care of yourself and your children, Anna

      Small donation from an LBU responsible tourism alumni. Great to see what you've done and how it will make the world of difference to someone so far away, who really needs it right now.
