Many international and local relief organizations are now on the ground doing their best to respond under difficult circumstances. Below are two reputable non-profit organizations currently responding to the earthquake and that have had active presence in Nepal before the disaster. Please consider making a financial contribution, which is considered the fastest and most effective way to help in such circumstances.
