Trekkers take on Mt Everest for Eyes4Everest

Eyes4Everest – the volunteer group that operates free eye clinics for Sherpa people and their children in Nepals’ Sargamatha (Mount Everest) National Park – has organised a trekking challenge to raise funds for its next eye clinic.

The 18-day trip will immerse participants in the Nepalese culture with time spent among locals in the villages and at markets, learning to cook, and eating, authentic local food, sand painting and observing traditional customs. The organised trek to Everest base camp will take place over 14 days, and will include the option of a visit to the Khunde Hospital built by Sir Edmund Hillary or the Khumjung Monastery.

The Trekking Challenge is designed for people who cannot provide eye care services but wish to support Eyes4Everest. Participants are required to raise funds, which will contribute to the provision of comprehensive eye tests, prescription spectacles, protective sun wear or safety glasses, medicated eye drops and eye surgery if need be.

The 2016 Trekking Challenge will take place from September 28 to October 15. The cost is AU$2,300 per person. Visit eyes4everest.org.au.
