Nepal

I know I know our hearts are breaking for Nepal. But before you rush to get that flight or send over clothes and medicines, read this article. Long-term Nepal resident Claire Bennett says that unless we have specialist medical training, we should wait for the dust to settle and then try and send over people and stuff. It’s difficult but do try telling that to the school and college kids who have galvanised themselves into action. Distribution could be a nightmare. We could also contribute monetarily through a reputed non-profit such as the International Medical Corps or Oxfam.
