      Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund: How to help

      Nepal Apr 29, 2015 at 3:40 PM

      As a global company, we believe we have a responsibility to not only support the communities where we live and work, but to lend a helping hand when disasters strike and one is needed. We wanted to let you know that the TripAdvisor Charitable Foundation (which includes VirtualTourist) has made a disaster relief grant to Global Giving in support of their Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund. These funds will support earthquake recovery and relief efforts in Nepal. The Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund will use all donated funds to help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, the organization will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted local organizations.

      If you would like more information on the Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund or would like to donate, you can do so

      For anyone who may have family or friends in the impacted areas, we are thinking of you during this difficult time.

      With kindest regards,

My husband and myself are booked on non-refundable tickets to visit in 3 weeks and I'm a bit nervous. We may do a bit of volunteering but would like to see some of the rest of the country as well....Are there any like-minded travellers out there who will also be travelling there soon?
