Tsering Kondo in Upper Mustang

Kamzang Fund Update

We had a chance to catch up with Tsering Kondo in her remote village of Yara, Upper Mustang, during our Nar Phu to Upper Mustang trek in October 2013 ...

We've been helping her through the Kamzang Fund; she has a hearing problem and a new hearing aid which, of course, she's not using. But she's as full of life as a young child anywhere in the world, and is speaking and interacting with others more easily than she was last year. We are trying to get her to come to Pokhara with her father or mother this winter to be fitted for a new, small hearing aid with the help of NAHOH, a Kathmandu-based hearing project which is aided by Whitsunday Hearing out of Australia.

She's pictured here in a new sweater & hat, graciously knitted by one a trekker's sister in Adelaide, and further down with new school supplies and other presents.
Kids don't get much cuter than this one!
