Vince is going to Nepal again

Some of you might remember that my husband, Vince, visited Nepal a few years ago. He has been involved in raising money with a group to provide wells in remote areas of the country. These provide clean drinking water for the people which in turn reduces the number of cases of dysentery and other diseases. He also took over a suitcase full of children’s clothing which was distributed in one of the villages. Now he is going again in October with other members of the group. To help raise money we are going to raffle some items at the concert we’re holding on Saturday. I’ll write more about that later. While in Nepal Vince had the opportunity to get quite near to the summit of Mt Everest. This was without oxygen too! But of course the plane in which he took the joyride was pressurised.

He helps with the fund-raising when he can, mostly by selling collectable coins.

Maybe in years to come you'll be able to. There are lots of deserving causes.

@cintol Getting to some of the places involve very rough bus trips and such travelling really affects my back. That's the main reason.

Willingness to take up projects to help the needy is an admirable sentiment. Hope you succeed in raising a lot of money with the raffle at the concert.And I am looking forward to the photos that Vince will be bringing back.

Nepal is a beautiful country but the people there are poor. I have been there with my husband years ago. I was organising a conference there for delegates from eleven countries hosted by the company I was working for. We did get time to see the place prior to the conference. We too had plans to get a flight to see the Everest but heavy clouds cancelled our plans.

Certainly it is a poor country. Vince's flight was almost cancelled too but in the end he was able to go and got some beautiful shots.

Well Nepal has been quite under-developed for years. And I believe that the politics of the country can be blamed for it to a big extent.

That's so honorable. Our daughter-in-law was there and loved it. Glad Vince's plane was pressurized!

Vince has been hankering to go back ever since his first trip. You didn't really think he was climbing did you?

The scenery must be amazing. I once bought a stove for a school room in Nepal.

After Vince came back, we bought a goat for a family. A physiotherapist that Vince had met organised the gift. We were surprised how expensive a goat was but they are highly prized there.

To get clean water you need to go quite deep to get away from the pollution.

That must be some good experience that he had over the mountain. IF this was picture that you have shared, then it's beautiful/.

He really enjoyed his time there in 2015 (I think that's right) so he is looking forward to going again.

I remember very well that Vince visited Nepal. I am scared to read "a few years ago", I thought it was the beginning of last year. Time flies.

@LadyDuck When I search for 'Nepal' I can find a couple of posts here mostly about particular photos from his trip so I guess anything else must have been in Bubblews.

I have visited Nepal two years back but I didn't like the place and noticed that Nepalese don't like Indians. That's so kind of your husband.

It is very useful work that the charity does. And yes, the mountains there are very high. This is the one they call 'Fishtail'.
