Helping the Nepalese People Recover

In the wake of the tremendous earthquake that shook Nepal on April 25th and the continuing damage being suffered throughout the country from frequent aftershocks, we know many people are wondering what they can do, and they also want to be sure their donations go as far as possible to help the Nepalese people directly.

If you’d like to help, we recommend this NPR piece on 10 vetted charities doing relief work following the earthquakes. It lists nonprofit organizations already mounting relief efforts in Nepal. While no list will ever be 100% perfect, these charities and nonprofits have been evaluated based on specific criteria and these organization are among those considered to be highly ranked charities by, a non-profit organization that has developed a numbers-based rating system to assess charitable organizations and provide people with guides to intelligent giving.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) has also set up a specific appeal for Nepal Eye Care Relief. Click the link to find out more.
