In 2019, we had the wonderful experience of a week-long visit from one very special person from London – nurse Kimberley St John. It was to be the first of many visits to follow; she was also planning to bring students from London on study tours with us. This got cancelled because of COVID-19.
And now we get this devastating news that she died suddenly due, we hear, to a dissecting aneurysm of aorta.
On her Facebook page, she had written, “I recently started working with a palliative care organization called Pallium India. I visited for the first time a few weeks ago and had the most incredible and inspiring experience. I really was blown away by the work they do with such little resource.”

Our thoughts are with her family and friends.
Thank you for everything you have done, Kimberley.
