Nepal Green Tara Foundation have just completed Aid distribution to 206 homes

Nepalhilfe Tirol Austria with the help of Nepal Green Tara Foundation have just completed Aid distribution to 206 homes in Thame Area from Phurte Thame and Taranna - Ward no 4,5,6,7,8,9- comprising of OVER 750 residents, who have been badly effected by the Earthquake on April and May 2015.

It was wonderful to have our Chairman Wolfie and his friends from Austria present for this aid distribution.

Oct 4 2015, Thame

The day started with bright rays of the sun gleaming across Yeti Mountain Home. Dr Kami Temba and his team had notified all the recipients for the aid 3 days prior to our arrival. They were instructed to come at 9 am on 04 Oct to receive the aid money. It was indeed wonderful to visit Thame after 4 months since our last visit with food and shelter (just 1 week after the Earthquake). Seeing that everyone now had roof over their heads and life had become normal and much happier, then the state I had met them on my last visit made me feel proud of the work we here at NGTF are doing. We started the distribution of cash for all the families NPR 15,000.00 for each family and as for families with less then 2 people we gave them NPR 7,000.00. This money has come in a very timely manner for the Sherpa people it will most definitely prove to be very useful for them. Specially Thame area, as not many trekkers walk this trail and today I can see that there aren't any trekkers for the autumn season in Thame Tea house lodges, which are not many as compared to the Everest Base camp trail. So I believe that this money will be a great relief aid for them to buy ration and other essentials or just to buy materials that can be used for their new homes.

There is still plenty of work to do in Thame especially supporting the local school and the Tenzing Norgay Hostel that need help with re-construction. Both the hostel and the school got damaged by the earthquake. We at NGTF continue to support the people of Thame Village, home of my grandparents. Tenzing Norgay and his 2 wives - late Dawa Phuti Tenzing and late Daku Tenzing.

I take this opportunity to specifically give a BIG THANKS to Wolfgang Nairz, Chairman of Nepalhilfe Tirol, who is not only an excellent alpinist mountaineer but also a dear friend of the Sherpas. He has visited nepal over 60 times and we the Sherpa people have a special place for him in the land of Chomolungma, Solo Khumbu.

We feel that we are truly blessed by his kindness and his generosity to help our Sherpa People and the other districts of nepal -Nuwakot - Sindipalchok - Dading- Kavre - at this very hard times that the country is facing....

I would like to Thank Dr kami Temba and Yeti Mountain Homes for organising today's aid distribution in Thame. Much appreciated ...

Tenzing, with Sir Edmund Hillary, made the first ascent of Everest on 29th May 1953. Tashi's mother is also a climber. She was a member of the 1959 International Women's Expedition to Cho Oyu, in Nepal - the 7th highest mountain in the world - an expedition which ended tragically in the death of two climbers.
