Appeal for Nandeesha Medical Assistance Fund halfway to goal


The appeal to help pay for the medical expenses incurred by Dr. M.C. Nandeesha’s family in the struggle to save his life has raised a total of USD 42,295 to date; this is 55% of our target amount of USD 77,000.

The appeal, launched December 21st, is a combined effort by Aquaculture without Frontiers, World Aquaculture Society, Global Aquaculture Alliance, Asian Fisheries Society and Network of Aquaculture Centers in Asia-Pacific.

We have heard today from our colleague, Prathapa Chandra Shetty in Dubai, that Mrs. Rajeshwari Nandeesha is slowly recovering from the unimaginable and sudden events in her life. Now that she is back in Bangalore, after having participated in the Funeral Celebrations at Nandeesha’s home town, she has started looking at the many letters and emails received from Nandeesha’s friends and colleagues around the world. She is overwhelmed by the support and kind messages of condolence that she has received. She wants you all to know that she has no words to express her gratitude for the kind of support she has received during these difficult times and that she is extremely grateful to everyone.

We encourage you, if you have not done so already, to help us achieve our goal of collecting USD 77,000 by making a donation either online via the WAS website or by cheque. Details are provided by clicking here.
