  Mount Everest Foundation for Sustainable Development in Nepal and Tibet: Service Trek led by Everest summiter Dan Mazur: Come here more about it!


Here is a photo by John Vavruska showing Elselien and the ladies of Nirmalai Danda looking at a photo that Elselien just took of them with her father's digital camera.

 

We hope to continue to tell our story in 2005, and those of us who

recently trekked into rural Nepal to visit a newly born remote health clinic and a 20 year old village water system first installed in 1984 by Sante Fe's John Vavruska, are presenting a lecture generously hosted by the Asher family at Wild Mountain's exhibition space at 7:15 pm on Wednesday 26 January at:

 

Wild Mountain

(nr. Candyman)

851 St. Michaels Dr.

Sante Fe, NM, 87505

 

Its a fundraiser slideshow for repairs to John's water project (he has

beautiful photos to show), and more medicine for the new health clinic. We hope that Ms. Elselien te Hennepe from Rotterdam will also be in attendance and show her fun photos, as well. Daniel Mazur also has a few slides, stories and video to share of recent treks and climbs in the Khumbu Valley and Everest from Tibet. Dan is bringing the 3 satellite phone systems and new lightweight oxygen system they are using on Everest.

 

For tickets please contact Jon and Jan Asher at: Phone: (505) 986-1152, Toll Free: 1-800-988-1152

Here is a photo taken by John Vavruska of Jangbu Sherpa, looking proud in the Patale Health Post, which he founded to help the 4000 people in this district, who before this time had no access to health care, and had to walk three days and take a bus for one day, in case of emergency, so they could get to the nearest meager health services. Before the Patale health clinic was established, many villagers died on the way to get health care. In the left side of the photo, a mother is holding her infant who has just received treatment for an infected cut.

 

We really appreciate the efforts of EverestNews.com in showcasing the latest service trek under the auspices of the Mount Everest Foundation for the Sustainable Development of Nepal and Tibet. Here is a photo taken by John Vavruska from the ridge above Patale Village, where the new health post is located. In the center of the photo, you can see a long "ridge" which is Nuptse, and the pyramid-shaped peak to the right of it is Mount Everest, on a clear morning in November.

 

 

This photo, taken by John Vavruska, shows a woman standing in her doorway of Nirmalaia Danda village, holding a photo, taken last week, of herself and child that John Vavruska took 20 years ago.
