UNRCPD Statement: Nepal Earthquake

1st May 2015

On April 25th 2015, Nepal was hit by a devastating earthquake of 7.8 magnitude, causing severe damage and killing many. UNRCPD would like to offer its condolences to all the people that have lost family or friends in the devastating Nepal earthquake. Our thoughts are with the millions who have been affected by this disaster.

While UNRCPD’s Kathmandu office has been severely damaged, all staff of the Center are safe. As UNRCPD is the UNODA Regional Centre, its staff has been temporarily relocated and has resumed work on our various projects in the region. [source: UNRCPD]
