Donations and support for the Sona Sherpa Memorial fund, following his tragic death in a terrorist attack, continue to be received at the CAN office.  CAN is now confident that the target of £7,500 (10 Lakh NRs) will be reached. Thank you to everyone who has donated to the fund. Your generosity and support is greatly valued by Sona’s family.

Arrangements have been made for an initial payment to Sona’s wife to help her meet immediate needs of the family. Careful consideration is being given to how the remaining funds can be best used to ensure a long term benefit for the family.

Other mountaineering organisations  have also pledged (or have already contributed) support to Sona’s family including the Korean Mountaineering community, with whom Sona undertook some of his 8000 metres climbs,  the Nepalese Mountaineering Association, the BMC and the UIAA.
