The recent earthquake in the Himalayan Kingdom, Nepal has shook the world. Kathmandu and the adjoining areas have witnessed massive damages.
The earthquake has left the capital city Kathmandu short of shelter, food, water, medicines, power etc. Rescue teams and aid from all over the world is contributing to reach Nepal and are trying to overcome the devastating situation.
All of our guests and colleagues in Nepal are safe. Our Nepal office team has meticulously assisted our guests and has even stayed with them overnight to ease out the situation. I have been personally involved along with my team, and have not left a single stone unturned to evacuate all our clients back from Nepal.
It is indeed encouraging how the employees and business partners have shown keenness towards voluntarily contributing as aid towards relief work. I thank you all for your indispensable support and prayers for our brethren in Nepal at this crucial time of need. It's time for us to look ahead towards attaining new horizons for ourselves.
Following the devastating earthquake in Nepal, TWX has been actively involved in various relief activities within Nepal. One of the major activities that TWX has decided to undertake is rebuilding the Samata Sikhya Niketan – The first Bamboo School in Nepal. TWX has been actively involved with the school for some time now and has been supporting them in whatever little way possible in past. Unfortunately, the school has been severely affected by the devastating earthquake which occurred on 25th April 2015 and series of aftershocks.
Six class rooms of the school have been demolished. Their students come from Bhaktapur, Nagarkot and villages nearby. Many of their students lost their home and family members. Monsoon is approaching in Nepal soon and which will affect the school and their students more.
- 900 student lost/ damage their home in that area
- 42 teachers and staff lost their home
- Cost of building 6 class rooms will cost approx. NRS 10 Lac.
Hence we would like to support the school by rebuilding the 6 class rooms, support the homeless students by providing 1000 tents for temporary shelter, and school fee with books and stationeries for a year for the affected students.
TWX Staff have and would continue to voluntarily contribute a certain amount from their salaries as aid toward relief work.
Let's pledge together to support Nepal at this crucial time of need.
