Congratulations to Merit Hietanen (IDHA 43, IDHA Lecturer) and husband Matthew Richard who recently celebrated the birth of their son! Merit writes: “The new light of our life, Hugo Bernard Hietanen-Richard, was born on 7 January 2016. Full of humanitarian potential, he is, however, currently only occupying the beneficiary-end of things and considering his needs as the only relevant ones to approach. Parents are happy and ecstatic and looking forward to an emergency that would allow them to get some sleep.”
