On Wednesday, September 25, 2019 Samjhana Pun and Prakash Khatiwada were finally allowed to leave Nepal together with Ellen Dietrich after an additional hour of uncertainty at the airport immigration office. We were overjoyed.
We want to thank all those 1121 people who had signed our petition to the Nepalese Embassy in Germany and the German Embassy in Nepal and commented on it. Without your help we would have never succeeded.
You gave us the courage to continue. In this exhausting struggle to secure approval for Samjhana and Prakash to leave Nepal you gave us the strength to endure to the end. Thank you very, very much for it!!!
We are also grateful for the support given by the Nepalese Embassy in Berlin and the Honorary General Consulate in Stuttgart that endorsed our petition. Last but not least we want to point out and recognize the untiring commitment of the German Embassy in Kathmandu.
A whole delegation consisting of the hostfamilies, German friends and sponors awaited us full of joy at the airport in Stuttgart. It felt great to have finally arrived.
Thanks again once more for your great support!
