Nepal needs your help!

type:Crowd Funding, Donation, Project
by:Deniz Zehra Tavli

A major earthquake has struck Nepal, causing massive damage. Hundreds of people are confirmed dead, and thousands have been injured. The epicenter of the quake, which measured 7.8 on the Richter scale, was in a densely populated area near Kathmandu, and the impact has extended into northern India.

Oxfam aid workers are on the ground, preparing to launch a rapid response to ensure food and water reaches those in need.

The priority is to ensure that affected people have adequate humanitarian assistance and to prevent secondary disasters, including outbreak of disease by providing safe water and critical sanitation support. Sanitation facilitieswill be built in the temporary camps working in partnership with UNICEF. Nepal is one of the world’s poorest countries. Half of its 28 million population live below the poverty line.
