Nepal Earthquake Relief Efforts

CharityWatch announces a list of highly efficient charities involved in efforts to provide emergency relief and humanitarian assistance to earthquake victims in Nepal.

Following the devastating earthquakes that hit Nepal in late April and early May, relief efforts to provide food and shelter are likely to be needed for the three months following the earthquakes. Up to two million survivors will need basic relief, such as tents, tarpaulin sheets, toilets, dry food, and safe drinking water.

The earthquake has killed thousands of people in Nepal, and dozens in neighboring India, Tibetan China, and Bangladesh. Thousands more have been injured and are displaced in the aftermath of the earthquake.

Nepal is one of the poorest countries in Asia, so relief efforts and reconstruction will be largely dependent on aid from international governments and nonprofits.

In addition to the human devastation, many of the UNESCO World Heritage sites in Nepal have been irreparably damaged.

Ebola Virus Epidemic: Best Way for Donors to Help

As of mid-September 2014, more than 4,784 people have been sickened and at least 2,400 have died. Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone have been hardest hit, with cases in Nigeria as well. The current epidemic is spreading more widely than previous Ebola outbreaks, with inadequate access to health care in the countries affected making it particularly difficult to bring the epidemic under control.

While the United States and other world governments have made large pledges for treatment and prevention of the virus, the groups that are working to contain the virus are urgently in need of critical monetary assistance.
