Kathmandu, Nepal 
More than 4,600 people dead. More than 9,000 injured. Eight million affected across Nepal. One million children urgently in need of help.
Those are the startling numbers that indicate the scale of the devastation from the huge earthquake that struck the Himalayan nation on Saturday.
And some of the grim figures are likely to get even worse as hopes of rescuing any more survivors diminish every hour.

There are many ways to help.  
These are some of the organizations 
on the ground in NEPAL today.


Mercy Corps 
Mercy Corps is working with the Nepal Red Cross Society to help distribute essential household supplies, shelter kits and tarpaulins.

Save the Children
Save the Children has emergency kits, hygiene materials and tarpaulins already in Nepal and ready for distribution. Additional supplies and emergency recovery teams are being flown in.

Oxfam America
Oxfam’s team in Nepal is assessing needs and it is sending emergency food, water and sanitation supplies.

Seva Foundation
100% of donations will be sent to partner hospitals in Nepal.

Friends of Patan Hospital
All money raised by FOPH is used directly to benefit the people in Nepal. There is no expense for staff, office space is donated, and professional services are all pro bono.
