Nepal: How You Can Help

An earthquake struck Nepal early Saturday afternoon, a natural disaster that has left more than 2,300 people dead. Nearly 6,000 people were injured during the 7.8 magnitude quake, which struck an area about 50 miles north west of the nation's capital, Kathmandu. On Sunday, a powerful 6.7 magnitude aftershock also jolted the area. As images of devastation and tragedy continue to pour across social media and TV, the natural question for many people is, "What can I do to help?" Our colleagues at PRI have compiled a list of seven vetted nonprofits that are working to provide relief in Nepal.
