Residents With Ties to Nepal Focus on Aid (Valley News)



Associate Professer Sienna Craig and her husband, lecturer and Dickey Center for International Understanding Program Manager Kenneth Bauer, are helping to organize relief efforts to aid those affected by Saturday’s earthquake in Nepal, reports the Valley News.

“My personal inclination is to get on a plane, but as a civilian I’m not sure it’s the right thing for me to do,” says Craig, who is chair of the Department of Anthropology and, along with Bauer, has lived and worked in Nepal since the early 1990s.

None of her contacts in the country have died, she told the newspaper, though she is still reaching out to many others.

“Nepal is like my second home,” says Craig, who is organizing a meeting at Dartmouth to begin coordinating relief efforts. The meeting is set for tomorrow at 6 p.m., in Silsby Hall, room 317.
