Xeretec and its employees have raised thousands of pounds to help victims of the Nepalese earthquake, which devastated parts of the
Gorkha region last April.
Through a combination of staff fund-raising initiatives and a matching donation from Xeretec, £5,000 has been raised to buy 100 goats for villagers affected by the earthquake, which measured 7.8 on the Richter scale.
Goats are a financial life-line for thousands of affected families. Milk provides sustenance; young kid goats are sold or traded for other goods and services; and older female goats are sold for breeding.
