We support The Juniper Fund who are working in conjunction with and partnering with the American Alpine Club's Sherpa Support Fund to support them in allocating funds as part of their excellent effort to address this most recent incident on Everest. At The Juniper Fund they continue to work on the long term elements that affect local workers of the mountain based tourism industry. Please consider donations via either route – the American Alpine Club and The Juniper Fund.

Thank you very much for the support of these Sherpa families who are affected and thank you for your care, concern and prayers. Our team at Base Camp has been integral in the rescue co-ordination effort that has occurred on the mountain since Friday as well as looking after and supporting each other while grieving for the loss of their team members, relatives and mates.
