It is not only from the West that solidarity comes to Nepal after the earthquake, but most support has been given by India. Also the WSM partners in Asia have expressed their solidarity and support.

Just two illustrations: the Cambodian Labour Confederation (CLC), and C.CWADU also WSM partners, are gathering donations for GEFONT and NTUC (see article).

Another partner in Bangladesh, GK, which runs a Medical College and hospital said there are many Nepali students there, who, with the help from staff, went round requesting for donations. Apparently, while collecting this money, a child selling flowers on the street also come up to them and donated 10Taka (10Eurocent). GK will be sending a team of volunteers along with the Nepali doctors and students to Nepal for medical support.
