Ways You Can Help Nepal earthquake victims.

http://www.maheshpoudyal.com/nepal-earthquake-25-april-2015/

As our country and people struggle to deal with the disaster created by the earthquake on 25 April 2015, we living outside Nepal are also grappling with how best we can help our folks back home, not just our immediate families and friends but common Nepalis, especially those whose voice we do not hear much people in rural districts for example. We are just beginning to get some indication from outside the Kathmandu valley that the destruction and possibly casualties could be worse. All Nepalis and non-Nepalis who are not in Nepal but care deeply about our country should try to help in any way they can.

Below is a list of Earthquake Response Initiatives ongoing in/for Nepal, and this list is live and will be updated with the most up-to-date information as we get them. Please also suggest any others we might have missed. Some already have their teams on the ground working and are appealing for emergency donations; while others have just started fundraising and thinking about medium and longer term relief. Please help in any way you can and in the way you see fit. We urge you to donate to multiple agencies if you can, even if a small amount they all need your support to help the people in Nepal.


Apologies if this has already been posted. I've been on du very infrequently the last couple weeks but wanted to share this list. I've seen requests from Red Cross USA and wanted to give some better and other options.

8. Some states may also have a state Nepalese association that is accepting funds as well

 

also see if your employer will match funds, I know at least some do.
