Info for Nepal Earthquake

Putting this here for myself, but please help yourself & copy/paste to share the knowledge (along with yesterday's post with aid organisations to donate to).

International Community for the Red Cross: search for missing people/register yourself as safe: http://familylinks.icrc.org/nepal-earthquake/en/Pages/Home.aspx

Live Reddit updates about the earthquake, this has had some good info & links. http://www.reddit.com/live/usqod2db8ogh/

Before/after picts of a couple landmarks: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/04/25/world/asia/nepal-landmarks-before-after-earthquake.html?rref=world&smid=tw-share&_r=0&module=ArrowsNav&contentCollection=Asia%20Pacific&action=click®ion=FixedRight&pgtype=Multimedia

Translators without borders: http://translatorswithoutborders.com/About-Us
More about this organisation: Today TSF's American sister non-profit organization, Translators without Borders, assists in translating more than two million words per year for NGOs such as Médecins sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders), Médecins du Monde, Action Against Hunger, Oxfam US and Handicap International.

But this is not even meeting 1% of the need. There are literally thousands more organizations that need help for critical communications.

By developing an open digital platform and establishing organizational structure, Translators Without Borders hopes to increase that number to 10 million words or more every year.

Our mission is to increase access to knowledge through humanitarian translations. Join us.

editing to add a few more places
A couple more places you can donate for Nepalese earthquake relief. Both are located in NZ.

-This is the Himalayan Trust, founded by Sir Edmund Hilary in 1960. : http://himalayantrust.org/
They have a Give a Little page specifically to raise rebuild funds: https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/nepalearthquake

There is also First Steps Himalaya (an NZ-based charity), which usually raises money for rural schools. Schools in their project villages have been decimated & they are raising funds to rebuild or repair schools & early childhood care facilities. https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/earthquakenepalrelief
