Almost a thousand individual donors have stood up for the traumatised people of Nepal. Your generosity has amounted to a massive €73,536, as of Friday 29th May – a magnificent response by the ESB & EirGrid communities – staff, pensioners, members, supporters and friends. With some donations still to come in, we should pass €75,000 in total. The outcome is one in which you should all take quiet pride.
€54,000 of the donations are hard at work now in Nepal, as shown in the table below.

This marks the end of the initial emergency phase of our response. We have held back a balance of about €20,000, which we intend to devote to more medium-term recovery projects. We are talking to a number of NGOs about recovery fundings.
Once again, we salute your generosity. You have stood by these people in their darkest hour, and have made a real difference to thousands of people you will never know.. Thank you all.
