Kidasha's Virtual Climb of Everest

Kidasha's Virtual Climb of Everest

Why we need your help

Join our intrepid group of volunteers to virtually climb Mount Everest.  Everest stands at a mamouth 8848 meters tall and takes approximately 58,070 steps to scale.  During this lock down period our wonderful supporters will be climbing the equivalent height of  Everest in their own homes via their stairs. Some of our boys in our street shelter in Pokhara will also be joining in the challenge.
Kidasha is a dynamic and innovative charity working to improve the lives of children living in crisis situations in Nepal - victims of trafficking and abuse, children living in slums, on the street or forced to work as child labourers in exploitative situations.
For more information about Kidasha's work please go to www.kidasha.org
The current world situation of the Covid-19 pandemic has brought a completely new set of challenges to Kidasha's work.  Although, Nepal has seen relatively few confirmed cases of the virus, the country has been in lock down since March and this has severely compromised access to food and clean water for the majority of our beneficiairies. And for many, any meager income sources have evaporated overnight.
Children undoubtedly face the biggest threats - starvation, sickness and increased violence and absue are sadly the inevitable risk of an extensive and enduring health, social and economic crisis. 
Our team have been working with the most vulnerable families living in slum communities providing advice and guidance on mitigating the risk of contracting Covid-19; how to access government support and services, coping mechanisms to reduce stress & increased risk of voilence and abuse within their households.  We have also been providing basic food packs for some of the most needy. 
However, the threat of starvation and family breakdown is for so many a very real possibility and we urgently need your support to protect some of the poorest children in Nepal from hunger, neglect and the wider risks of Covid-19.
