Nepal is a poor country and the winter there is very tough. Most of the resourceless people risk their life every winter. Thanks to Mountain Equipment and Himalayan Experience, Friends of Humanity was able to distribute 300 sleeping bags to Tibetan Old People's homes in Kathmandu. These sleeping bags provide heat during the cold winters to people with weak health.
