Jamie et Isabella interviennent au Népal et attendent notre soutien
Around the world people are urged to open their hearts and wallets to donate what they can to local charities, in aid of the Nepal earthquake victims.
Paragliding pilots Jamie and Isabella Messenger who are local to Pokhora and are assisting onsite with the supporting charity Karma Flights.org. All those involved are urging fellow pilots to donate what they can to one of the local supporting charities.
Part of the Cloudbase Foundation, Karma Flights is a charity who’s focus is to bring aid, support and opportunities to local communities where pilots come and fly.
In a recent report American TV channel CNN outlined that because of its use of 4×4 vehicles for transporting paragliding pilots, it was the only initial ground assistance to have been able to traverse the trecherous roads to reach the stranded mountain village people, in desperate need of medical attention.
Days after the earthquake, Karma Flights are working round the clock in the worst hit areas.
“As you give, so shall you received”, is the law of Karma.
