The major earthquake that struck west of Kathmandu, hits one of the poorest regions in the world. The earthquake caused extensive damage to buildings and thousands of deaths and injuries. Vibrations were even felt in China, India and Bangladesh. Thousands of people need medical care and emergency shelters against rain and cold.
The international department of Caritas Germany provides a 100 000 Euro emergency aid to help the victims as fast as possible. BMG LABTECH wants to help too and donated 10 000 Euro to the organization.
