It is not often that I stray from talking about things other than archive research on this blog. However, over the last few months there have been a number of personal connections to the terrible effects of the earthquake in Nepal.
I thought it might be not too out of place to mention that there are numerous wonderful charities and organisations that are working to help those affected by the tragedy. One of these is the International Disaster Volunteers who are working with a number of communities in areas that have been struck hard by this quite staggering natural disaster.
Two of my personal friends are working for the organisation and I thought it would be a nice thing if I put a link on this blog so that people can see their work and, hopefully, make a contribution to it. Andy and Emma – I hope your work goes well.
