The EIB Group’s staff and the EIB, in an effort coordinated by the EIB Institute, donated EUR 250 000 to five charities following the devastating earthquake in Nepal that killed more than 8 800 people and injured more than 23 000 last April.

Donations from staff amounted to more than EUR 25 000 and the Bank’s management decided to top this up to the sum of EUR 250 000.

This amount was equally shared between five charities: Médecins sans Frontières  (Luxembourg), Action pour un monde uni in partnership with Nepalimed (Luxembourg), SOS Villages d’Enfants  (Luxembourg), Dolma Foundation (UK), ONGD-FNEL (Scouts & Guides) (Luxembourg).
