On May 11, a series of major earthquakes struck Nepal. These latest quakes come just two weeks after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake killed 8,000, left thousands injured and badly damaged Kathmandu. Already 29 people are reported dead and more than a thousand injured after the most recent quakes. 
 

Survivors of both quakes face shortages of food and water. Many are living in tents after their homes were destroyed. In fact, so many homes were destroyed that a government minister is requesting half a million tents from relief groups. Power outages and downed cellphone networks are impeding efforts to provide relief. And aid groups remain concern about the potential spread of diseases. 
 

We know the heart wrenching images of the damage will inspire many people to want to help.  Relief charities are working hard to provide food, clothing, hygiene items, medicine and temporary housing to assist with the immediate aftereffects of this disaster. The charities on our list have indicated that they are assiting in the relief efforts in some way, have a 3 or 4 star Charity Navigator rating and allow donors to desginate their donation specifically for this disaster. 
 

But before you give to one of these charities, first decide what you want your donation to accomplish and select the charity offering that specific type of aid. To do this, simply use Charity Navigator's website to view a charity's rating page. Once you are satisfied with its rating, then you can jump to the charity’s website to learn more about the type of assistance the charity is providing in relation to this disaster. For more tips on giving in times of crisis, please review our Tips for Giving in Times of Crisis here.

 

Watch this important message from Charity Navigator to find out how you can give generously and with confidence to the relief efforts.
