FIFA President Blatter has written to Dhirendra Pradhan, the General Secretary of the All Nepal Football Association, to express his sympathy to the families of the victims of the recent earthquake in the country and offer FIFA's support in the relief process. 

The earthquake, which struck on Saturday 25 April, has claimed thousands of lives in Nepal.

"On behalf of the international football community, I would like to join you in expressing my deepest sympathies to the families of the victims of the devastating earthquake in your country last weekend as well as my solidarity with the people of Nepal," President Blatter wrote.

"If there is anything FIFA can do to relieve the suffering, please do not hesitate to ask. In the meantime, we wish you a lot of courage as you come to terms with the extent of the devastation caused. My thoughts are with the Nepalese community at this dark time."
