Honda to Donate to Nepal Earthquake Relief Efforts
Honda would like to express deep sympathy and condolences to the victims of the recent earthquake which struck Nepal on April 25, 2015.
In response to this tragedy, Honda will donate approximately 20 million Japanese yen (US$168,000) as well as equipment to support the relief and recovery effort.
Whenever disasters occur, the Honda company closest to the spot assesses the situation and determines how best to respond. In this case, Honda Asia has taken the lead on these efforts.
Honda hopes this contribution will help support the restoration of the devastated infrastructure and assist with recovery for those affected.
Honda's operations in Nepal consist of motorcycle, automobile and power equipment distributors and dealers. At this time, Honda has not received any report of victims related to these operations; property damage is still being assessed. No victims or property damage has been reported for Honda operations in neighboring Bangladesh or the portions of India affected by this disaster.
