Hello, I am Shantibrata Chatterjee of SEI Trading India Pvt. Ltd. (SETI).
On April 25, 2015, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal. This was followed by numerous intermittent aftershocks, causing many casualties. I would like to pray for the repose of the souls of those who died and express my heartfelt sympathy for everyone affected by the disaster.
In response to this news, SETI, which operates in Nepal as well, provided support for those impacted by the quake, in the hope of serving them even a little, in cooperation with Map Entrepreneurs Pvt. Ltd.(MAP) (a local agency in Nepal), as well as the Lightwave Network Products Division and the Global Business Department of Sumitomo Electric.
▲ Truck carrying relief supplies
Specifically, we visited areas where MAP staff members suffered in the disaster and orphanages where children lived without their families or homes, and distributed temporary tents, water, food and other relief supplies. These materials were secured through cooperative efforts between MAP and Sumitomo Electric. I believe that our activities were somewhat helpful for those affected by the earthquake.
Since the earthquake inflicted extremely large-scale damage, it is likely that it will take a long time before the country fully recovers. Still, we would like to continue providing those affected by the disaster with support in some way.
