The stars shone bright at the Canadian Embassy’s red carpet soiree on April 24th, an event that lead up to the Washington Correspondents’ Dinner. Hosted by Ambassador Gary Doer, Extra, and the Hill – the Embassy was prepped to greet politicians from Washington, media elite and several celebrity guests. Complete with the Molson O Canada Beer Fridge, cocktails whipped up by Canadian Top Chef All Star Spike Mendelsohn, and photo ops with a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer - it was truly a star studded Canadian style celebration.
On April 25, 2015, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck near Kathmandu, Nepal, followed by a series of significant aftershocks. Initial indications put the number of deaths at more than 2000 and there is extensive damage to infrastructure.
The Government of Canada immediately responded to the emergency with a $5-million contribution to provide life-saving assistance through experienced humanitarian organizations.
Canada has also deployed an assessment team to evaluate the extent of the damage, the resulting humanitarian needs of those affected by the earthquake and how Canada might best respond. The Canadian Armed Forces are currently positioning their personnel and resources to ensure a prompt reaction.
