“From my lowest point to the highest peak!”

Nadia and her team are taking on the Everest expedition to raise vital funds for Mind BLMK and raise awareness of Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) in loving memory of their sister.

Nadia is one of four sisters who call themselves ‘the Power of 4’ because their bond is unbreakable, a fusion of love and strength encased within a deep connection. Sadly, they lost our youngest sister, Zena, to mental health and Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD). She lifted every heart and showed incredible kindness.

Now, in her memory Nadia, her twin sister Sonia and one of Zena’s best friends Bex aim to climb Mount Everest, shedding light on mental health and BDD awareness to keep Zena’s spirit alive.

Nadia’s big sister, Janan is unable to join the team on their climbs due to her disability but is working extremely hard behind the scenes ro raise awareness for BDD and fundraising for sponsorship.

“Challenges are not meant to break you; they are meant to shape you into a stronger version of yourself.” – Mostafa Salameh

Leading their team will be Mostafa Salameh, a Palestinian refugee, who became the first Jordanian to climb Mount Everest. Driven by a profound mission, Salameh embarked on this monumental journey to raise awareness for peace and unity in the Middle East. He was a spiritual Godfather to our sister, Zena, creating a profound bond and lifelong friendship.

Also joining their team is Lakpa Tsheri an International mountain guide and Everest guide, who summited Everest over 11 times and Leonardo Avezzano Award-winning film-maker and explorer. First person to traverse Iceland from the Arctic Circle to the Atlantic Ocean.

The team will be training hard to ensure they are fit and ready for the challenge. Together, they will ascend to new heights, symbolising the strength and perseverance needed to overcome obstacles, both physical and mental.

The Team

The Expedition

In order to qualify to climb Mount Everest, the team must undergo a series of altitude training. Over the next few years they will be undertaking;

  • JANUARY 2025 – Kilimanjaro, Africa (5,895 meters)
  • APRIL 2026 – Mera Peak, Nepal (6,400 meters) and Everest Base Camp
  • OCTOBER 2026 – Aconcagua, South America (6,900 meters)
  • APRIL 2027 – Everest, Nepal, (8848.86 meters)


The Team are looking for the kindness of businesses, organisations and individuals to sponsor their challenge. This is to ensure that all their fundraising can go directly into supporting mental health.

They appreciate any form of donation whether it’s monetary, or supplies. If you’re interested in helping out, then drop us an email [email protected]

Mental Health and Body Dysmorphia

Mental health issues, like depression and body dysmorphia, cause deep emotional pain and a distorted self-image. The Team are raising awareness to ensure others don’t have to endure it, like their sister did. These conditions can be isolating and overwhelming, but by understanding and supporting those affected, we can offer help and hope.
