Millions of people are affected by the Nepal earthquake of April 25th 2015 and the many aftershocks. They have to cope with injury, loss of loved ones, loss of homes, lack of food, water, shelter and livelihood. Some have still (as of October) received no real help from the government, and some only a little from NGOs. They are coping with patience and dignity, and hoping for a better future. Please help them to achieve it by donating to organisations like SHIVA Charity. We were there at the beginning and will be here helping until the end.
