Maxwell’s alumni from Nepal suggest resources and places to donate

Maxwell’s alumni from Nepal  recently shared a number of resources for those of you interested in supporting relief efforts or learning more about the recent earthquake.

Relief Coordination and Information Sites:

Nepal Disaster Risk Reduction Portal:http://drrportal.gov.np/
NepalQuake provides links to up-to-the-minute data: http://www.nepalquake.org/

Where to Donate:

The American Nepal Medical Foundation directs donations to help with front line relief, especially medical supplies: http://americanepalmedicalfoundation.com/.   You can also visit their Indiegogo site:  https://life.indiegogo.com/fundraisers/nepal-earthquake-relief-fund

Aythos, an NGO in Nepal, is adjusting its efforts from agriculture to relief, in order to meet the needs of Himalayan villages that have been devastated by the recent earthquakes. People in these villages are in immediate need of temporary shelter, medical attention, and food and water. Aythos  has been working in Nepal for the past six years and has local staff already in place to support these efforts.  Visit this alum supported nonprofit at :https://www.facebook.com/aythos

SEBS, the Society of Ex-Budhanilkantha Students, formed in 1982, is a volunteer organization with the main aim to provide social service to the community of Nepal and help in its development.  Based in Kathmandu, SEBS-NA is a Section 501(C)(3), charitable organization.  Their immediate plan is to assist with the disaster relief which will include  buying necessary medical supplies, tents or food supplies to those that have been affected. Any funds left will be used for long-term rebuilding that focuses on educational needs of needy children.  Donate here: http://www.sebsonline.org/misc/donate.aspx?c=NepalQuakeRelief

Our alumni also suggest giving to international relief agencies (UNICEF, CARE, RedCross, etc.) and directing donations toward relief for Nepal.
