The private initiative “Nepalhilfe im kleinen Rahmen” (Help for Nepal) was founded in 1999 and we at Charity Cat have been supporting them since the devastating earthquake on 25th April 2015. The initiative aims to help the construction and development of the extremely poor mountain regions and their main focus is to help Nepalese children in need. For this reason, one of their projects focuses on constructing school buildings.
Through a fundraiser in March, PUMA employees have collected a total of 4,469 Euros, which Charity Cat could then donate.
The money will now be used to re-construct the schools that were destroyed during the earthquake. At the moment the 1,300 students are staying in temporary shelters made out of bamboo scaffolding and corrugated iron roofs. Thus we hope to achieve a swift re-construction so that at least a part of the material damage can be repaired quickly.
