Food distribution to Larke Pass, Nepal

I came across this clip which I thought worthwhile to share with you.  It’s just four minutes in duration.

The clip demonstrates the severe challenges of delivering food basics to the people of remote areas such as Larke Pass.  Larke Pass (5123m) is situated on the Nepal/Tibet border in central-western Nepal and is a relatively popular trekking route on the Manaslu Circuit.  Monsoon rains, landslides and a higher than normal snowfall adds to the complications.

It also features members of the Seven Summits Women of Nepal who are ambassadors for the World Food Programme and are actively involved in this Remote Access Operation.

Despite how well SIRC is doing, this is a reminder to us all that the remote areas of Nepal and the people who live there continue to suffer unimaginably.

About Kate Coffey

After 25+ years in the investment management industry, I packed in my job and spent 2014 living and working in Nepal and Bangladesh, and visited some other places in between. It took me on a journey I did not expect, had me fall in love with Nepal and it's people, and become inspired at the work of Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) located 2 hours east of Kathmandu in the Sanga foothills. Since 2014, I have continued my warm relationship with SIRC and worked closely with my friends there in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquakes to date. This blog initially started out as a travelogue of sorts to keep friends and family worldwide updated while I was off on my travels in 2014. Since then it has morphed into a life story of the many places I have lived and worked and of the wonderful people I have met along the way. I hope you enjoy.
