Happy New Year!
Beast From The East mk2 is on its way. Get your hats, gloves and jumpers out.
Well, some people in Nepal are back at work. 42 companies and offices are now allowed to open and we are one of them! We are allowed to have some of our people back in the workshops and office but we have to provide food and lodging for them there. Everybody must stay 1m apart and we have to keep the whole area sanitised. So there was a small ‘relief programme’ at the workshops, a lot of the staff there came back to work and we gave out essential supplies of rice and lentils.
Today marks the fourth anniversary of the appalling earthquake that hit Nepal on the 25th of April 2015, killing about 9000 people, injuring more than 20,000 and rendering about 500,000 homeless.
The 25th April and the 12th May marks three years since the twin earthquakes in Nepal, which killed approximately 9,000 people, injured around 22,000 people and demolished around 600,000 structures in 2015.
Striking near Kathmandu in central Nepal, the earthquakes are also known as the Ghorka earthquakes (named after the district which was the epicentre of the earthquakes).
