KATHMANDU, Nepal–The Seven Summits Actions for Sustainable Society (SSASS) has donated 100,000 US dollars as relief to the families of the 13 mountaineering guides killed and three missing in the avalanche at Everest Base camp on April 18.
The amount will be used for education of the children beside support.

Chairman of SSASS Ken Noguchi signed a letter of commitment to this effect amidst a programme in Kathmandu to set up a fund for the support of the family members of the fallen Sherpa climbers.

The SSASS is a charitable organization presided by mountaineer cum social worker Noguchi. The organization works to support education of orphans of mountain climbers.

The amount was donated to Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). In 2002, Noguchi also founded the Sherpa Fund to extend the helping hands to the children of Sherpas who meet fatal death or accidents while climbing Nepalese peaks. Currently, 13 Sherpa children are studying in various schools in Kathmandu and Khumjung under the programme.
