The History of Pheriche Aid-post is as old as the inception of the HRA in 1973. Daniele Laigret, a French nurse, was the first volunteer at Pheriche. It was in the early fall season of 1973. Later in the fall of 1973 another volunteer nurse Dolly Lefever from USA went to Pheriche. A wonderful Sherpa man was hired at that time to help the clinic. His name was Tashi Sherpa. He was quite old but he had incredible knowledge and vast experience in mountaineering in the Himalayas. He was very loyal, strong, self-assured, at peace with himself and the world and of impeccable character. Tashi and Doly Lefever lived in a rented yak hut that had dirt floor, rough hewed beams and the usual stone masonry without any caulking. They lived there, until January 1974.Read more...
