Fundraising will be held on May 23rd and 24th to support Nepal in the event of a major earthquake

In order to help the victims of Nepal's great earthquakes and their reconstruction, the Kyoto University of Information Studies (KCGI) student council (representative: Mr. Yuu) was on May 23rd and 24th from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Kyoto. We carry out fund-raising activities near Sanjo Ohashi in the city.Encourage students to participate and cooperate.

The Nepal earthquake that occurred on April 25 has confirmed more than 7,400 deaths, and is said to eventually reach 15,000.Even now, only 14,000 people are injured and more than 1 million people are seeking a place to evacuate.There are people on the same planet who have lost their families, are injured, have lost their homes, or are suffering from lack of food and medicine.The University and KCG Group, which has strong ties with Nepal through collaboration with universities and mutual dispatch of international students and teachers, wishes the happiness of those who have died, as well as the recovery and reconstruction of injuries as soon as possible. I sincerely hope.The student council planned a fund-raising campaign to somehow help out.

Consideration and service for the weak is one of the proud traditions of the Kyoto Information Graduate University Student Council.Our students raised funds for the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake and the Sichuan Earthquake in China.

We hope that the goodwill and supplies received will be useful for the support and relief of the victims and the reconstruction of the disaster area through the Japanese Red Cross Society.
