DESIRE colleagues hit by earthquake PDF Print E-mail
Written by Erik van den Elsen   
ImageOn February 27th an 8.8 Richter scale earthquake has hit Chili. This terrible event has also affected our DESIRE colleagues from INIA in Chillan; Carlos, German, Alejandro and many more colleagues. From Christian Prat (IRD), who is in regular contact with them, we have had news that luckily there were no serious personal injuries. Of course there were material losses: many houses and institute buildings have been damaged or lost and also equipment, laboratories etc. have been lost.

The DESIRE management team has contacted the EU to
investigate what possibilities from within the project we have to support our project colleagues in any way. Christian has also asked our Chilean colleagues in what way we can best support  them, and we are awaiting their response. We will continue providing updated information about the fate of our colleagues and the aid for them on this website. Our thoughts go out to our colleagues.
