In view of the immense devastation caused by the recent earthquake in Nepal, we have made a contribution to the relief efforts. In the next few days hundreds of our sleeping bags will be sent on their way to the Lukla Hospital in Nepal. Nicole Niquille, an Exped acquaintance, operates the hospital in Lukla through her foundaition "Fondation Nicole NIquille". Her husband will be coordinating the distribution on site to the victims in need. We have received generous support for transportation in Switzerland by our logistics partner Fiege and Air Zermatt to Nepal.
