Mission 14 is redefining adventure by launching a monumental expedition in 2015 called The 6 Summits Challenge.
Through this world record-breaking expedition to climb 6 of the world's highest mountains in one year, we are focused on attracting a global audience to drive action in the fight against human trafficking and the sexual exploitation of children.
ALL donations received until May 31, 2015 will go directly to two of our partners, Shared Hope International's Asha Nepal and Tiny Hands International, who are working on the ground in Nepal after the earthquake.
Nick Cienski, Mission 14 Founder, his wife Sandi Cienski, Mission 14 Director of Operations, along with the 6 Summits Challenge climbing team, were at Everest Base Camp on Saturday, April 25 when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal, triggering a deadly avalanche on the mountain.
While Nick and his team were unharmed, almost 10,000 lives have been lost throughout Nepal and adjoining areas of India, China, and Bangladesh.
Widespread destruction and devastation throughout Kathmandu have left the area unstable, dangerous and vulnerable.
It is precisely this kind of chaos that traffickers, specifically those who wish to lure vulnerable children into the sex trade, thrive on - human misery and human trafficking often go hand in hand.
Nick and Sandi are in Kathmandu NOW. They are trying to make a difference by working with Mission 14's partners Asha Nepal, part of Shared Hope International, and Tiny Hands International.
Please help us to provide supplies, shelter, and food to disaster victims, and for assistance in rebuilding Asha Nepal's safehouse for human trafficking survivors.
We are asking for your help, prayers, and hope.
Mission 14 safeguards all donations and ensures that all funds go directly to the partner organizations during this period.
