Yushu County in Qinghai, China was the hardest hit area in the quake and is at an elevation of 3300 meters. Mt. Fuji, Japan’s tallest peak is roughly the same at 3776 meters or 12,388 ft. On July 10th we are going to climb Mt. Fuji in preparation for our trip to the Tibetan Plateau from July 17th. We would like to use this climb both to condition ourselves for high altitude and to raise awareness for the children of Yushu that we are going to help. Our team is building on extensive experience in Sichuan and Haiti to help trauma children in Yushu.
Sponsor our trauma work in Yushu by sponsoring a climber!
We would like to raise $1 for each meter of elevation in Japan’s famous peak. You can pledge as many meters as you like and we will use the money to conduct OperationSAFE camps for children who suffered trauma in the earthquake.
OperationSAFE is an international NGO devoted to helping children recover from trauma. We receive tax-deductible donations in the US through our fiscal sponsors, Horizon Christian Fellowship Central. Horizon does not deduct any of your donation for overhead costs and actually donates generously so that we can use these funds to help children.
