We are requesting compassionate people like you to give what you can. Any amount will help no amount is too large or too small. If each Sherpa could have an emergency amount of $300, it would be a very big help in buying food, paying medical bills, paying their room rent, and even go towards their kid's school fees. This is a short term situation; when the climbing season opens, the Sherpas will be back to work and get back on their feet financially. Your small contribution will help them to survive until then.
