The devastating earthquake which occurred on April 25th, 2015 in Nepal continues to shake the faith of thousands of people struggling to seek relief, searching for spaces, running for shelters and fighting off the fear of epidemics. Although international aid is pouring in into the country, the Nepalese Government has still not managed to effectively address the basic problems of the affected people. We are still counting the number of those who died and the survivors are desperately looking for relief.
As part of our efforts to increase relief efforts, we have gathered a list of donors and other international agencies that are actively providing relief and other basic services in Nepal.
We Help Nepal – We Help Nepal is a network supporting people-to-people investment in Nepal’s recovery effort from the April 25th 2015 earthquake. We Help Nepal is committing the first $9,000 raised for emergency supplies (food, tents, and water purification) to tent camps in Dhunbari and other Kathmandu neighborhoods through a trusted colleague who is already running a tent camp in his front yard). We Help Nepal will distribute funds to transparent, trustworthy grassroots groups that take a regenerative approach.
