KATHMANDU - The Nepalese people have shown their gratitude to China and the Chinese International Search and Rescue Team (CISAR) members for their stalwart deeds in Nepal during the country's time of dire need in the post-earthquake days.

A large number of Nepalese people expressed their thanks and appreciation to China for the great effort and contribution made and offered from the Chinese side to provide rescue and relief services to those effected by the devastating earthquake.

The 62-member CISAR team has returned safely home from Nepal after working tirelessly in dangerous conditions for the two weeks, with their efforts leaving a lasting impression on the locals they served, helped and, ultimately, saved.

Govinda Bhandari, 39, a local resident of Manamaiju, Kathmandu, one of the worst quake affected areas, describes China's rescue efforts with nothing but praise.

"The Chinese have won the hearts and minds of the Nepalese by showing a great contribution in a time of unimaginable disaster time," Bhandari said. "The Chinese team will remain in our hearts forever."

Bhandari, a local entrepreneur, who saw the work of the CISAR team from up close, was particularly impressed about the team's honest dedication to their work and tireless efforts.

"Nepal and other countries could learn a lot from China's example here," he said.
