In immediate response to the devastating earthquake that left Nepal in ruins on April 25th, SHL quickly reached out to World Vision to hold an internal donation event at its key manufacturing sites in Taiwan where a booth is being set up for staff to contribute in any amount possible. SHL employees at regional offices in Sweden, USA and China have also all joined in the company’s efforts through World Vision International or their respective channels.
According to CNN’s latest report, Nepalese officials say more than 9,000 were injured, with the death toll now totaling nearly 4,600 and still increasing. Countless have no food or shelter. Nations and NGOs worldwide have begun the restoration of Kathmandu (capital city of Nepal) and impacted regions by sending rescue teams, food, clean water and emergency relief materials.
“As a global company that strives to design and develop medical devices that can ultimately improve patient’s quality of life, it is even more imperative we serve as a role model in humanitarian actions whenever possible. This is truly an unfortunate event and we hope our efforts as a company can help the victims,” says Roger Samuelsson, CEO & President of SHL Group.
To encourage staff donation and further express the company’s commitment, SHL has pledged to match the final amount donated by SHL employees. The funds will be used to help with all relief efforts.
