LVCF

LVCF was established in 2004 by a group of cyclists travelling through Laos. Inspired by the local people who showed them such warmth and hospitality, we provided schools and other help in Laos, flood relief/a women's sewing centre/school support in Pakistan, and funded a blind charity in Tibet.

Story

[Please see update below for progress on spending your donations so far]

Since the devastating earthquake in Nepal last weekend, many redspokes customers have contacted us enquiring after our Nepalese staff and their families. Within 24 hours we have reached our initial target of £2,500 which is fantastic. We've now increased this to £4,500 which will enable wider support to be provided to the Nepalese communities. 

We have heard some news regarding Ox (Akshya Dulal) and Jyoti Adhikari,  our agents and their families. Ox has told us that he and 50 of his family members are living in 3 tents.  We are trying to get more detail about all the guides and team members.

Communication is difficult as you will understand and we will update you with everyone’s circumstances as soon as we are able.

We need to find out more about the staff, drivers etc - if any of them have lost their living or ability to support their families.As the situation becomes clearer we’ll be able to give details on how financial support can be deployed to best effect. 

Please give generously to this appeal.
