South Asia and Middle East (SAME)

SAME Region was initially established in 2010 as Central Asia Middle East (CAME) through the efforts of Ms. Stacy Saha, Dr. Barbara Parfitt working in Bangladesh, Ms. Chinnamma Mathew from India and Mr. Sarfraz Asif  from Pakistan. They all visited  Kathmandu, Nepal in 2010 where they met Ms. Rebbeca Sinha and finally the CAME Region came into existence as new region of NCFI.
