How to help the victims of Nepal’s earthquake disaster

On Monday, the devastation from the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that struck the heart of Nepal on Saturday was not yet fully known. The death toll surpassed 4,000 without accounting for the mountain villages where rescue workers still struggled to go.

Thousands of survivors were sleeping outdoors and in need of shelter, food, fuel and medicine. Lingering tremors and traffic jams in and around the capital Kathmandu made distribution of relief supplies difficult.
