“Wonderful meeting my IDHA 44 friend James Tan in Kathmandu. Remembered you all my fellow IDHA 44 mates and missing those lovely days in Geneva in 2015. Hope to catch you all one day. James is doing such a great humanitarian job for the Nepal earthquake victims in Dhading and Sindhupalchowk districts. Very much appreciated his efforts for the people in Nepal.” – Mukesh Singh (IDHA 44)
