Many porters are poorly outfitted for the physical rigors of climbing and suffer due to inadequate protection from the extreme weather found on the mountain. IMEC provides mountain climbing clothing, at no cost, to porters.
This gift will provide for 1 months maintenance of the Clothing Lending Program for the porters. Our clothing stock includes waterproof ski jackets, rain jackets and pants, fleece pullovers, hats, gloves, scarves, socks, and boots. We are currently providing gear for 300 porters per month.
