How You Can Help: The Nepal Earthquake

By Acumen on April 27, 2015

On Saturday, April 25th, an earthquake with magnitude 7.8 shook the country of Nepal, as well as parts of northern India. Hitting south of Kathmandu, the earthquake killed more than 3,800 people and injured more than 7,100 as of Monday morning. It is the worst to hit the region in 80 years, and aftershocks and tremors continued to rock the country over the past 48 hours.

As the city’s 1.2 million people flock to the streets, the nation and its citizens are in desperate need of relief. Committed to our partners and community in South Asia, we wanted to highlight those organizations mobilizing resources and deploying people on the ground to help victims of the earthquake. Please see below to learn how you can support the people of Nepal and follow their Twitter feeds for more information:
