Nepal Earthquake Donations, local help numbers etc

I was shocked to read when I woke up that a 7.9 earthquake had hit Nepal. It had at the time already taken the lives of over 700 people. (Now 1400 @ 1pm est)

I pray for the people of Nepal especially those who have lost a loved one or has missing relatives. This saddens me as a human, a Hindu, and a Mountaineer.

I cannot do much to help but I can at least share links to the credible relief agencies that are taking donations. I will also try to share as much info as possible. I will put this out unfinished , and updated frequently, to be as effective as possible

Donations

I will post the most effective,  genuine links only, so there may only be a few

Oxfam– read Oxfam’s response including actions they are taking, includes link to donate

Save the children

Red Cross Nepal relief fund

Unicef

A lot of people seem to also be suggesting the Prime Minister of India’s National Disaster Relief Fund . This one is confusing me at the moment. Obviously they have sent a huge amount of aid very quickly, but the wording of the conditions on the page is confusing. If I see the Indian Government are suggesting it I will post it up. If you have any info please let me know > @fuegopazzo

 

 

 

Much more to follow. Pls comment via @fuegopazzo for speed
