Supporting mountain communities in their time of greatest need.

Through the bad times and the good

It’s no exaggeration to say that the vast majority of Himalayan climbing expeditions wouldn’t be able to operate without the support of local communities. Yet all too often, when the worst happens, these communities are left to deal with the consequences themselves.

Recent years have seen a whole range of misfortunes affecting the people of Northern Pakistan and Nepal, from devastating earthquakes, and fatal avalanches on the mountain to the dramatic loss of income caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Our aim is to help not only those who have worked with us but everyone involved in this sector and suffering due to this pandemic. If you’d like to help them you can contribute by donating even a little which will mean a lot. Please consider making a donation on our gofundme page.

Where your funds will go: 100% of these funds that have been raised will go in support of the climbing community, who are in need and have lost income due to cancellations and work stoppage due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is emergency funding to help them with their livelihood, feed their families, help the utilities, and medical needs.

In May 2020, we supported a further 25 families from Gorkha district of Nepal by providing them with emergency ration relief.

Just as Nimsdai himself is committed to offering employment for the indigenous people of the mountains during the good times, the Nimsdai Foundation is committed to supporting them through the bad.

The Foundation’s disaster relief fund is dedicated to providing both financial and material assistance - in the form of grants, sponsorship and/or direct provision - to people in Himalayan communities in times of extreme and unforeseen hardship.

Nimsdai’s success to date has relied, to a large extent, on the support of these communities. They are his friends, climbing partners, brothers and sisters. The Nimsdai Foundation disaster relief fund is aimed at ensuring that the same, unwavering support is reciprocated, whenever it’s needed the most.
