Remembering Helen Mo

Dearest Family and Friends,

Our beloved Helen Mo passed away on Tuesday, April 11, 2017. She died in her sleep during the early morning hours. It was unexpected, but peaceful and painless. She was 33 years old. She was full of happiness and delight in her final days, and most importantly, Helen knew that she was deeply loved and respected by all of us.

McMaster Lecturer and Friend of the CSSR almost at fundraising goal to build new school for children in Tipling, Nepal

I was able to see first-hand the damage that was caused by the recent earthquakes, and I was fortunate to meet some of the amazing people who are working tirelessly to rebuild the country's damaged infrastructure.
