#Basanta Adventure #distributed # 2nd round of relief fund to freelance Trek Leaders and operation staff,
Covid-19 devastated tourism industries causing to shut down many businesses and caused a massive spike in unemployment, Thanks to the generosity of our guest, friends, well-wisher and extended family around the world who have helped us to keep our core staff on reduced salary thus helping them to survive through the crisis. We raised over US$ 12000.00 to pay off 16 staff for 6 months from January to June 2021,
We plan to continue raise fund through crowdfunding as the resumption of tourism could take years, please do let us know if you are keen to donate to this great cause,
