As is all over the news this morning, Nepal and surrounding areas have been hit by a severe quake. At time of writing there are over 1,100 confirmed dead, a toll that is likely to rise.
I’m sure all our thoughts are with those affected. (Mine are in particular with an old friend from Chch who is currently in Kathmandu.) Given the links between our countries, and now our shared experience of the devastation of quakes, I hope to see NZ contributing significantly to relief and rebuild efforts.
