Especially violent monsoon wreaks death and destruction - Beilngries high school raises funds

This year’s monsoon season in Nepal and its neighbour countries has been exceptionally violent, with attendant rains wreaking death and devastation. This was especially true of Terai in the south of the country. Authorities have reported a total of 160 dead, not counting the many missing and injured. Masses of water swept away houses or badly damaged them. Multiple landslides, destroyed bridges and roads hampered rescue teams on their way to the affected areas.

As far as Nepalhilfe Beilngries’ institutions are concerned they have been spared from damage. the organisation nonetheless feels it is its duty to help the people in distress. Kawasoti Midpoint Community Memorial Hospital, located in Terai, which the Beilngriesians have been generously supporting for several years, has set up several assistance camps in the regions hit hardest.

This makes a donation from Beilngries’ Altmühltalrealschule (junior high school) all the more welcome. Lily Black and Johannes Wiest, the editors of this year’s graduation magazine presented Manfred Lindner, vice-president of Nepalhilfe Beilngries e.V., with the proceeds from the magazine sale amounting to 1,902 euros as a donation. Manfred Lindner will immediately forward the money to Nepal, where the recipients are sure to welcome the assistance.

In case anyone would like to follow the example of the graduates, details can be found on the donation page on our website.
