As most of the world is now aware, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal near the capital of Kathmandu. “Immediate rescue efforts are underway to stabilize the area. The estimated death toll has reached 7000 and continues to rise. The full extent of the damage is still being assessed, but aid groups are mobilizing to provide support and emergency supplies to the people impacted by the earthquake. All donations will support earthquake recovery and relief efforts in Nepal. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors’ immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted local organizations.”
