5 ways to help Nepal

On 25 April, 2015, Nepal was struck with what is deemed as the worst natural disaster to have hit the country in over 80 years. As many as 7,000 people have been killed and over 14,000 injured in the calamitous earthquake—measuring 7.8 on the Richter Scale—that struck Nepal and parts of India like Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, and China. As the world comes together to help provide relief to the country and its people, we recommend five organisations through which you too can contribute.
