Nepal – A little over a year since Nepal was devastated by a massive earthquake that left thousands dead and hundreds of thousands homeless, the country is poised to enter the reconstruction phase. To mark the transition from relief through recovery, IOM released a video documentary dedicated to the people of Nepal in appreciation of their determination and resilience.

“Foundation of Hope: Year One of Relief, Recovery and Reconstruction in Nepal” was directed by Nepali award-winning documentary film maker Ganesh Panday and an all-Nepali crew, including a cameraman who lost four members of his close family in Sindhupalchowk in April 2015.

IOM is grateful for award-winning composer Gary S. Scott’s donation of his music to the film; his work has been featured in many successful television programs worldwide over the past three decades. The executive producer of the documentary was Nick Ashton-Hart, an expert on international public policy, and the current Geneva Representative of the Computer & Communications Industry Association (CCIA.)
