Raising Hopes and Houses

Finance in Motion's own charity steps in to help victims of an earthquake.

Together with Sambhav Nepal e.V., Finance in Motion’s in-house charity fimshare is supporting people rebuilding their homes and lives following the devastating April 2015 earthquake in and around Nepal’s Gorkha District. fimshare began collecting money to help those affected by the catastrophe, and the charity’s first donation has arrived in the region: A farmer, his wife and their three children have become the first beneficiaries to receive money from fimshare’s total contribution of EUR 5,000. Since the earthquake, the family has been living in a temporary shelter they built on their own for EUR 130. Construction of the family’s new house is already underway, and we hope it will progress quickly and soon be completed so they can have a permanent home once again.

Sambhav Nepal e.V. is a non-profit, non-political, socially oriented organization aiming to establish and implement sustainable education, health and community development programs with a focus on isolated areas. To widen its impact, Finance in Motion works together with such groups to help people all over the world. If you would like to support this or any other fimshare cause, read more about them here
