Helping out in India
Following the Gujarat earthquake in January, Schneider Electric India and its entire workforce raised 450,000 rupees for the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund for emergencies. Employees were also involved in local initiatives with schools, associations, charities and religious organizations.
The Gujarat earthquake occurred on Friday, January 26 during India’s 51st anniversary celebration. The violent trembler measured 8.1 on the 9-point Richter scale. It was felt as far away as New Delhi, hundreds of kilometers from the epicenter in Bhuj, itself some 300 kilometers from Ahmedabad, the state’s commercial capital.
