OUR MAIN PROJECT JUST NOW...
Sama is located in a remote valley just below Mount Manaslu, the eighth highest mountain in the world. It takes 6 days to trek into Sama from the nearest road. Two villages in Sama are now experiencing a crisis. COVID-19 has yet to arrive in Sama, yet this pandemic has caused serious food shortages. For centuries these mountain people have traded with Tibet and Nepal for the food they need but cannot grow. The border with China has been closed and lock downs in Nepal have impeded food transport. Now people have no money to buy staples like rice, flour, lentils, and oil. This year the small amount of money they rely on from mountain trekkers, portering, and selling herbs did not appear. Please consider contributing to Food4Sama. Families are rationing their supplies resulting in hunger and poor nutrition. With your support we can buy basic food for these hardy mountain people so that they may survive the winter. Without this help, their lives are in danger.
