Take on Everest Base Camp with The Avela Foundation

As part of the Together to Give Everest Trek, you will trek to the gateway to the highest peak in the world—Mount Everest.

On this adventure, you will first discover the sensory overload that is Kathmandu—Nepal’s bustling capital city. Fill your senses with the sights, sounds and smells of a city simultaneously hurtling towards modernity while stoically maintaining its traditional religious and cultural uniqueness.

Moving beyond city limits, you will then trek for 7 days days through alpine meadow, into birch and rhododendron forest, across rivers and along narrow mule tracks between snow-capped mountains. Together with a team of local guides and Sherpas, you will discover the majesty and mysticism of the Himalayas by day, and fall asleep in traditional lodges and guesthouses in remote Nepalese villages at night.

Imagine the sense of accomplishment of standing in the shadow to Mount Everest knowing every step you’ve taken has raised vital funds to help burn survivors achieve their full potential.

The funds you raise in this challenge will go to launch the Umatter support network, a psychological support network for burn survivors and their families. The physical pain of a burn is horrific, but the worry, fear, and emotional pain it causes to survivors and their families can be just as difficult. Emotional support is crucial for recovery.

By providing the right psychological support to burns survivors and their families, burn survivors will become an asset not a liability to our society.

The funds will also assist in the refurbishing of the Kimberley Hospital (Northern Cape, South Africa) burns unit (ward K2).

Due to vast distances in South Africa, it is of utmost importance to have a state-of-the-art paediatric burns unit in the Northern Cape.

Your involvement as a fundraiser will help us decrease the number of fatalities by educating communities on burn prevention and assist The Avela Foundation by offering burn survivors and their families the crucial psychological support required to prepare them for the future.
