Relief Aid to Nepal

In April 2015 Nepal experienced a devastating earthquake that killed more than 8,800 people and injured more than 23,000. Hundreds of thousands of people were made homeless with entire villages flattened across many districts of the country.

To support the relief efforts, our international freight network the Universal Freight Organisation (UFO) recently collected clothes, blankets, torches, toiletries, sleeping bags, sanitizers and toys to send directly to the Nepal organisation "World Freight International". The relief aid was shipped to Nepal and then distributed in the Kavre district of Nepal, where 90% of houses collapsed after the earthquake.

Along with other members of the UFO network, we donated funds to cover the costs of shipping the aid to Nepal, along with the purchase of large bulk quantities of antiseptic wipes, wind-up torches, long-life food, self-heating meals and over 3000 water purification tablets.

Below are some photos of the aid being distributed to Mandali Devi Primary School in the Kavre district. The school experienced significant damage and classes are now held in the open area under tarpaulin. The relief supplies were given to the school along with food, drink, stationery and education supplies.
