As the Nepal Red Cross Society continues its work on behalf of thousands of people affected by the earthquakes in April and May, it also pays tribute to three National Society members who died while on duty on 25 April. Sanumaiya Kapali, 53, Lal Maya Gurung, 43, and Sirman Dangol, 20, were killed while running a blood donation drive in Kathmandu’s historic Durbar Square. Seven other people also died along with the Red Cross workers when the earthquake caused the building to collapse.
