Hi Everyone, I wanted to try and reach out to some of you that I think might be able to give a couple of pounds towards a person and his family whom I know and respect as a man.

Last week my father passed away and I have come to learn that as one man has left the earth which was a father to me ' by name term' only.  Anther man is still on this earth who is a great father.

I have trekked with Deu Chandra now twice, and met all his family. They all live in a small town in Nepal in Pokara. I have been to his house, eaten in there, spent time with his family and felt so welcomed. They live so simple and Deu does his absolute best as the man of the house to go out and find work in the harsh environment that is trekking. Deu's wife looks after the children and cant work as the 'caste' system is so rife in Nepal that you have to be viewed as being in a certain category to be even able to find any sort of decent work.

Deu is a lovely warm , kind and gentle man that just wants to be a good father to his children, everything that a father should be in this world we live in.

My message is simply this, I am going to donate some money to Deu, and I hope you can spare some too. Even the price of a coffee or a sandwich, or 1 drink of the many i'm sure we are going to spend over this festive time.

Money of which thi well deserved father, can spend money on his family, as I know he will do. 

To put things into perspective here are some figures.

  • £10-15 is roughly a daily amount that he can earn for trekking 8-9 hours in the freezing snow, helping us western lot up a hill .
  • £40  pays his bills for about a third of the year....if not more
  • £3 is the average cost of feeling his family for a few days in Pokara

Please give whatever you can...... it is Christmas, and it should be a time that familys enjoy each others company, and i'm sure they will, even though they have no heating !

 This year maybe he can sleep a bit easier at night with a little comfort blanket we can give him ....with a little extra money ...

Thank you for the time you have taken to read this.....

He really is a great Father, to his children ! He tries his absolute best for his family. It's not easy trekking up mountains constantly when your in your mid 40's for not much money. He has been a porter all his life and now a trekker, its a brutal way to earn money !

Deadline is 24th  - Christmas Eve, I'm going to call him up then in Nepal, wish him a nice Christmas and then tell him how much we have raised.

Lets be nice to one another in this world, please give what you can, thank you.

Love Charlotte
