The RCOG would like to express our support to the people of Nepal after the recent earthquake there.

RCOG President, Dr. David Richmond says: “Everyone at the RCOG has been deeply shocked and saddened by the devastating impact of the earthquake in Nepal, which has resulted in such significant loss of life, injury and damage to homes and livelihoods across the country."

“I’m sure that all our Members, Fellows, Officers and staff will join me in expressing our sympathy to the Nepalese people at this terrible time and in sending them our very best wishes and sincere hopes that the situation starts to improve soon."

“My colleagues and I are also doing all we can to establish whether members of the RCOG International Representative Committee in Nepal and our other members and partner organisations there are safe and well.”
