Kathmandu and SANDEE

Dear friends and colleagues:

The devastation from the earthquake in Nepal is terrible and Nepal is in the initial stages of recovery. Thank you for the many expressions of concern and good wishes sent to the SANDEE Secretariat.

I am relieved to inform you that all our colleagues in Kathmandu are safe. They are now beginning to figure out how to proceed as there is still no electricity etc. I suspect it will be a week or two before any normal operations are possible.

Thank you so very much for your best wishes.

Priya Shyamsundar
Executive Director, SANDEE
