Nepalese Earthquake Appeal
Tandrang Gorkha

The small village of Tandrang Gorkha has been demolished, along with many others, due to the earthquake. The village's population of 4,368 is now without housing and possessions: nearly all 838 houses are gone. Our colleague Bishnu Lamichhane's mother and three brothers and their families are now without housing. Please help to assist his family and the entire village by donating; all immediate money will help with tents, food and clothing, and anything further will help them rebuild in the near future.

Selected quotation

"Je n'ai fait celle-ci plus longue que parceque je n'ai pas eu le loisir de la faire plus courte. (I have only made this letter so long because I did not had time to make it shorter.)"

(Blaise Pascal)

From a postscript to his XVIe Lettre provinciale.


Membership to CARMA offers many benefits and is available by invitation to all University of Newcastle academic staff. Associate membership, also by invitation, is available to external researchers and practitioners for three-year renewable terms. Associate members are expected to visit CARMA with some frequency, typically for a total of three to four weeks in a year, and to be involved in one or more ongoing research projects with CARMA members. CARMA is able to assist with the travel and living costs of such visits.
