Thanks for helping people in need
6 November 2015
Our support is helping people hit by earthquakes in Nepal rebuild their lives.
And we’ve received a special message of thanks from the UK’s Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) who set up the Nepal Earthquake Appeal.
Saleh Saeed, DEC chief executive, says: “We want to thank BT and all BT staff and volunteers for helping DEC respond so quickly to the appeal.
“BT MyDonate has proven yet again it is a reliable and secure system for DEC donors to give through.”
We set up a BT MyDonate appeal page within 12 hours of the first earthquake.
It’s six months since the earthquakes killed more than 8,000, injured thousands more and left millions homeless.
Alice Hunt Head of BT MyDonate says: “The appeal – which is due to close shortly – has raised more than £18.2m via BT MyDonate.
“A big thank you to everyone who has donated or been involved with the appeals. Your help really does make a difference.”
