No amount of money can heal the pain of losing loved ones but as a matter of fact the Sherpas have been working as a mountain climber for the living and for the better future of their children so it is crucial that if we could support as little as we can.

No amount of money can heal the pain of losing loved ones but as a matter of fact the Sherpas have been working as a mountain climber for the living and for the better future of their children so it is crucial that if we could support as little as we can for their left behinds. As you know the recent deadliest Mount Everest Avalanche took lives of 13 Sherpas and 3 still missing, Sherpas risk their lives every moment making path to the top of Mount Everst for the climbers and they get paid very less wages (Around $5,000 per season) comparing to the risky nature of the job. The entire family depends on the head of the family who can climb and make money for the living.The government of Nepal has made no contribution to the victims families as they have announced immediate relief fund of equivalant to $400 each, it clearly seems that no further support will be provided to the victims families. 

As a Sherpa myself I know that Sherpas have helped many foreigners to conquer Mount Everest and even guided them to different peaks and trekking destinations. I would like to ask every one of you to contibute as you can to help their families, specially for the schooling of their children.

Some family stories from Yahoo.

Ang Kaji left behind three sons, three daughters and elderly parents.

"Our father was the only one who earned in our family. We live in a rented apartment, our grandparents need regular medication, and all of us are still in school. We have no idea how we are going to support the family," said 17-year-old Phinjum, Kaji's second daughter.

Dali, 28, lost her husband Pen Tenji, 27, in the avalanche. His body is yet to be recovered.

She has a 4-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter and no other source of income to support them.
