Een kleine twee weken geleden ontving ik prachtige foto’s van een kleurrijk Nepalees huwelijk. Prakash, 27, internationale collega en kennis, was getrouwd. Vanochtend bereikte mij het bericht dat zijn vrouw Pravina, 21, door haar ex-vriend is doodgeschoten. Het stelletje was net 13 dagen getrouwd. Wat een ongelooflijke tragedie…
Dear friends of Prakash & Youth Action Nepal,
In case you haven’t heard yet, Prakash’s new wife Pravina was killed by her ex-boyfriend a few days ago – 13 days after their wedding day. The killer then turned the gun on himself and he is also dead. This is obviously a massive tragedy and Prakash is devastated. He is currently in 13 days of solitary mourning.
Members of Youth Action Nepal along with friends and family of Pravina and Prakash are planning to establish a Trust in her name to support educational opportunities for young people in Nepal. But I was wondering if you have any ideas about how we could support Prakash – maybe giving him a holiday somewhere later in the year, etc.
Please remember Prakash in your thoughts and prayers at this very sad time.
