Labdoo Laptops from Hubs in Barcelona Delivered in Nepal
This is a special story that we think is worth sharing... Anna's brother, Enric, was a young engineer. Together with two of his university classmates he had started a company on renewable energies and he was very involved in social and earth green projects. Unfortunately, Enric passed away after bravely fighting cancer. Anna contacted Labdoo to donate Enric's laptop because "he would have loved that his laptop is used to help bring education to children". Thanks to Labdoo hubs in Barcelona and to dootrippers Raimon and Marta that went to Nepal just a few days ago, his laptop is now being used at a school in Nepal. Enric's laptop traveled together with two brand new tablets donated by another family in Catalonia, which were then all collected by teacher Saroj in Kathmandu. Now these tablets and laptops are all being used in the school as book reading and educational devices.

A big thank you for all the labdooers around the globe who have made this story possible and our deepest thoughts of condolence go to the victims of the recent earthquakes in Nepal.
