Your Help needed to get in touch with Ms.Didem Yaman

Dardanelles University academics Ms. Didem Yaman was İn Christchurch there for doctoral works.
Her family have spoken to her a day before it happened.She has planned to visit Christchurch
Cathedral and some shopping Malls the next day.

Since then, unable to get any news from her.All official applications are made but ı believe
HU-community is the faster team.

Could you please try to give us information about the present situation of her.
She was staying together with a Korean or Chinese acdemics lady named Sisi Xin.
Now both telephones cant be reached.

Hope you can be helpful.

Best Wishes
zeki avar


news video about her.
Didem Yaman Kayıp

It is with regret that I have to tell you that Didem Yamen was formally identified as being one of the dead in the Christchurch earthquake.

Here is a link to the news post;

Condolences.
