Logwin Charity: New perspectives for Nepal

As a logistics service provider, we master our customers' requirements on a daily basis and bear responsibility for ensuring that goods arrive at their destination safely and just in time. With our work, we also want to do something good for society outside of our daily business: That is why it is very important to us that our employees get involved in our international charity programme. That's why Logwin is once again supporting a charity together with Voith GmbH & Co. KGaA and the association "Zukunft für Nepal Ostwürttemberg e.V." (Future for Nepal East Württemberg), Logwin is once again supporting people in Nepal to improve living conditions on the ground.

Grevenmacher (Luxembourg) – With an earthquake-proof half-timbered hall and the provision of a hydroelectric power plant, the people in Nepal have many new opportunities: On the one hand, the power supply is secured by the small, fully functional hydroelectric power plant with turbine and generator. On the other hand, the hall will later serve as a training workshop and production site for furniture and earthquake-resistant houses.

Due to its geographical location, strong earthquakes occur in Nepal time and again. But the events in 2015 were among the worst so far and the situation on the ground has still not been restored. In order to continue to help the inhabitants in the inaccessible hinterland at the foot of the Himalayas and to give young people in particular a perspective, the declared aim of the support for this year was to provide electricity and the opportunity for vocational training. At the hydropower plant, young people can be trained as hydropower technicians in the future and learn on the machines for processing wood how they themselves can one day build furniture and earthquake-proof houses for their region.

This was made possible by the renewed cooperation of several companies with the association "Zukunft für Nepal Ostwürttemberg e.V.": Voith GmbH & Co. KGaA, a large German machine manufacturer, collected donated machines and refurbished them. Emil von Elling and his company provided the construction kit for a half-timbered hall, because half-timbering - especially when combined with clay - is considered extremely earthquake-resistant. Logwin organised the logistics services and transported the total of five containers with the prefabricated house parts, the woodworking machines, the hydroelectric power plant, tools and other equipment to Kolkata. From there, the association took over the further transport to the hinterland.
