Written on April 29, 2015 by Roberto Arribas in General, Highlights

Nepalese IE University students have launched the #IEforNepal campaign to raise funds to help those affected by the earthquake that hit Nepal last week

nepal“Our own immediate families are safe, but we consider every Nepalese to be our family. Right now, they need us.” This message of solidarity was sent by Nepalese IE University students Tsering Kenji, Anup Satyal, and Nischal Shrestha, who have launched the #IEforNepal campaign to raise funds to help the thousands affected by the earthquake that hit Nepal last week. IE  and IE Foundation are giving their full support to the campaign, which can accessed at https://www.gofundme.com/swzrrg, by pledging €10,000 to match donations made in this first phase by IE’s students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Here at IE we wish to express our heartfelt solidarity with the Nepalese people at such a painful time. We have been contacting our graduates in the region and according to the information received to date they are safe. However the earthquake has claimed thousands of victims, and hundreds of thousands more are suffering the effects.  “We are extremely thankful for all the support given and concern shown by the students, alumni, faculty and everyone from the IE community during this difficult time in Nepal and India,” says Karan Gupta, IE’s Director of International Development for India and South East Asia. “When we face difficult times, we find hidden reserves of courage and resilience. We stand side by side with the people who have faced this unimaginable tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Nepal and India.”

#IEforNepal

Alumnos nepalís de IE University han puesto en marcha la campaña #IEforNepal para recaudar fondos para ayudar a los miles de damnificados por el terremoto que ha arrasado el país asiático. 

“Nuestras familias están a salvo pero cada nepalí forma parte de nuestra familia. Ahora, nos necesitan”. (Original quote:“Our own immediate families are safe, but we consider every Nepalese to be our family. Right now, they need us.” Este es el mensaje de solidaridad de Tsering Kenji, Anup Satyal y Nischal Shrestha, alumnos nepalís de IE University que han puesto en marcha la campaña #IEforNepal para recaudar fondos para ayudar a los miles de damnificados por el terremoto que ha arrasado el país asiático. La campaña, a la que se puede acceder en https://www.gofundme.com/swzrrg, cuenta con el respaldo de toda nuestra institución y de la Fundación IE, que ha aprobado un fondo de 10.000 euros para igualar la donación de alumnos, graduados, claustro y staff de IE en la primera fase de captación de fondos. 

Queremos expresar desde estas líneas nuestra solidaridad y afecto hacia el pueblo nepalí en estos momentos de dolor. Estamos contactando con nuestros graduados en la región y, por los datos que tenemos hasta el momento, se encuentran seguros. Pero son miles las víctimas del terremoto, cientos de miles los damnificados. “Estamos profundamente agradecidos por los mensajes de apoyo de nuestros alumnos, antiguos alumnos, profesores y toda nuestra institución”, expresa Karan Gupta, Director de Desarrollo Internacional de IE en India y Sudeste Asiático. “Cuando llegan momentos difíciles encontramos valor y fuerza para superarlo. Nuestro pensamiento y oración están con todos los que han vivido esta inimaginable tragedia en Nepal e India”.
