This is for everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Yasmine and would like to give their support to Tom and family.
Yasmine Ryan tragically passed away yesterday (Nov 30) in Istanbul. Yasi was an amazing, talented young woman who had spent many years in North Africa and the Middle East as a journalist, investigative reporter and international correspondent. It is a terrible loss for journalism but an even bigger loss for her family and friends.
Yasi's devoted father, Tom, left on the first plane to Turkey last night to bring her back home to New Zealand.
This page is for everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Yasmine and would like to give their support to Tom and family during this very difficult time.

I'm part of the anthropology programme at the university where Yasmine's father works and am co-ordinating this page on behalf of everyone who knows and loves Tom and Yas.
Funds raised will be used to support Tom and his family to bring Yasmine home and any other associated costs.
