In reply to McGus:

Following the tragic deaths on Everest on Friday 18th April when 13 Sherpas lost their lives in the Khumbu Icefall on Everest and three more Sherpas are missing, and must be assumed dead, the Himalayan Trust UK has launched a fund raising appeal to help the sherpa families affected.
