9 Ways to Donate to Nepalese Earthquake Victims

It’s been more than a month since a series of earthquakes devastated Nepal and killed more than 8,500 people. With thousands more homeless and various organizations working to stabilize the country, the need for resources is great. Already, Nepal is starting to fade from headlines but help is still badly needed.

Here are nine well-regarded organizations you can donate to in order to make a difference and help relief efforts.

1. Global Giving

Global Giving is a fundraising platform that is helping to support Nepal. They’re close to reaching their goal of raising $5 million, which will first provide food, clean water and other emergency supplies to survivors.

Once the situation stabilizes, Global Giving will partner with local organizations to help long-term recovery. Make a donation and read about Global Giving’s mission on their fundraising page.

2. Friends Service Council Nepal

Friends Service Council Nepal works exclusively in Nepal. The organization already had boots on the ground to distribute much-needed aid in the immediate aftermath of the earthquakes. It’s a small, nimble organization. Currently, donations are only accepted through wire transfer.

3. Red Cross

Few organizations match the scope and size of the Red Cross. They’ve committed more than $9 million to Nepalese earthquake victims so far and have mobilized 7,000 staff and volunteers to help.

With so many hard-to-reach towns devastated by the earthquake, one unique way the Red Cross is helping is by having volunteers assist in mapping the country digitally. Find out more about the Red Cross’s efforts on the Nepal section of their website.

4. Save the Children

Save the Children has been in Nepal since 1976 and is very familiar with the challenges facing the country. They now have 400 staff members in the country and have 44 tons of aid to help the victims. Contribute to their mission and know that 10 percent of your donation will be used to help in potential future disasters.

5. Oxfam International

Oxfam International has delivered clean water to 30,000 people on a weekly basis since the earthquakes hit. They acknowledge, however, that the need is far greater than that.

With blocked roads and other logistical challenges, Oxfam aims to help 400,000 people throughout the country. Contribute to their efforts in Nepal, today.

6. Direct Relief

Direct Relief lives up to its name by providing medical supplies to areas in need. They are particularly effective because they partner with local governments and long-established NGOs on the ground who know exactly what’s needed and how to make an immediate impact.

So far, Direct Relief has delivered 119,000 pounds of medical supplies to Nepal. They have a news page providing timely updates about new relief efforts within the country.

7. Room to Read

Room to Read, a nonprofit dedicated to providing an education to those who need it most, was formed in Nepal in 2000. Since then, they’ve helped build nearly 4,000 libraries and more than 1,000 schools.

Now the organization is ramping up efforts to bring much-need aid to the country. Donate to Room to Read via this form or through a third-party organization like FrontStream.

8. Action Against Hunger

With Nepal’s infrastructure devastated, Action Against Hunger is working to improve conditions and make sure the situation doesn’t worsen. They’ve provided food, temporary shelters and sanitation to some of the hardest hit parts of the country. Make a donation to Action Against Hunger’s efforts in Nepal here.

9. Giving Children Hope

Giving Children Hope allows you to help Nepalese earthquake victims in several ways: You can donate money, food or even your time as a volunteer. This nonprofit tries to give children economic independence and teach them to be self-sufficient so they can grow up in a stable environment.
