Trekking to Everest Base Camp


Expedition raises funds for two causes

On 31 August, a group of 26 employees, led by our CEO Elie Khouri, set off to Nepal for a 10 day-trek. The group, comprising staff from all our agencies, will climb from Lukla to Everest Base Camp with Gulf For Good. This initiative is a key component of our CSR/sustainability plan.

The challenge, which will see them walk for some 100 km, has helped raise valuable funds for two causes. These are Mission Himalaya, a local orphanage and eco farm, and the UNHCR. With the funds, Mission Himalaya will build a new dormitory for the boys. It will also get a solar panel system, computers and school supplies. Our donation to the UNHCR is for the medical treatment of Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
