TI Nepal

Written by Robert Barrington on Tuesday, 28 April 2015

The devastating earthquake that hit Nepal and surrounding areas in India and Tibet just before noon local time on Saturday, has killed over 5,000 and is estimated to affect over 8 million people in the region.


 

It is with some relief that we have heard that our friends and colleagues in TI Nepal, as well as their close relatives, have not been seriously physically injured in the disaster.

The Chapter is assessing the situation further and the TI Secretariat is seeing what can be done to assist TI Nepal, which may have an important role in helping ensure that international disaster relief is effective.

I sent the following message to TI Nepal this morning.

Dear Friends and Colleagues in TI Nepal

We have all heard in the international media about the terrible suffering that Nepal has endured in recent days, and have been hoping that, as one small ray of light, our colleagues in TI Nepal, and their families, are unharmed. We have today heard that this is the case, and I am writing on behalf of all of us at TI-UK to express our feelings of solidarity with you in these very difficult times, and the times to come. Please feel free to call on any resources we have available that you feel might be useful for you as you seek to rebuild your chapter and your country. You remain in our thoughts.

With very best wishes from all of us at TI-UK.
