Rockslide at Bondo

The rockslide at Bondo has left a trail of destruction in Val Bondasca in Graubünden. We are providing emergency aid and bridging aid and meeting the costs of the clean-up operation.

Landslide with dramatic impact

On Wednesday, 23 August 2017 part of the Piz Cengalo mountain fell away, causing a rockslide that laid waste to Val Bondasca and submerged houses and agricultural buildings. Some roads and access routes were severely damaged or totally destroyed.

This natural disaster may not yet be over. Millions more tonnes of rock could fall away at any time.
