Nepal Earthquake Recovery: How to Help

News and Press Release

The earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday, April 25, 2015 was the worst to hit Nepal in 80 years. The quake hit Nepal’s heavily populated capital, Kathmandu, and impacted areas of India, Bangladesh, Tibet and China. As of Monday, more than 4,000 deaths have been confirmed, with millions more people injured, displaced and facing total devastation of their homes and communities. The death toll is expected to climb even further, and while early reports emerging from the country have shown massive destruction, the full extent of the damage is not yet known.

Right now, Operation USA is readying medical equipment and supplies in our Los Angeles warehouse for delivery to Kanti Children’s Hospital in Kathmandu. We’re also working to deliver material aid and funding to other partner organizations on the ground aiding victims. Your donations allow us not only to get aid where it’s needed quickly and effectively, but they also ensure we can make a long-term commitment to the people of Nepal.

Operation USA continues to call for donations to aid in recovery efforts and funding for grant distribution to local agencies in the affected areas. We are also seeking corporate partners across the healthcare, transportation, water purification, shelter construction and power generation sectors to provide donated in-kind supplies of which there will be high need in areas affected by earthquake.

As is true with every major disaster, more donations mean more opportunities to aid victims. So far, OpUSA has received generous gifts totaling more than $66,500, but that’s not enough. The more we raise, the more we are able to help… and millions of people in Nepal and its neighboring countries are counting on us. We need your support.
