Bangkok, Thailand, April 30, 2015 – AVC President Dr Saleh A. Bin Nasser, AVC Board of Administration Members and all AVC affiliated member countries are deeply saddened by the monumental loss in the Nepal earthquake.
As the world comes to terms with the magnitude of the mammoth tragedy that struck Nepal on April 25 by a massive earthquake that killed thousands in the landlocked country located in South Asia, the AVC volleyball family badly need to share their deep regret over the huge destruction and the human loss.
“My deepest condolences for the devastation and enormous loss of life caused by the severe earthquake in Nepal. A couple days later the death toll has surpassed 4,000 and rising as aid trickles in from remote villages flattened by the tremor hit. The powerful forces unleashed on Nepal are hard to comprehend and the images that we have seen are very terrifying. It is such a difficult moment for the nation,” said Dr Saleh A. Bin Nasser.
“On behalf of the AVC, I would like to say that our hearts have been filled with pain and sorrow for our Nepalese friends who lost their colleagues and loved ones in the devastating quake. A tragic moment should be remembered for nothing, but sorrow and tears. Nevertheless, I truly hope that tears and sorrow will be contained soon. There shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain.
“The AVC would like to express our heartfelt sympathy to all Nepalese friends. We hope and pray that you all will soon find peace and comfort in these difficult times.”
