Nepal Earthquake Appeals

April 27, 2015

I have spent the weekend watching news of Saturday’s earthquake in Nepal. Countless lives have been lost and countless others changed forever. I am thinking, in particular, of all those who have been left disabled by the disaster.

Several charities have set up fundraising appeals. The Independent published this list of links yesterday:

Here are some of the ways you can help with those affected by the devastation:

The easiest thing to do is donate £5 to Unicef by texting ‘DONATE’ to 70123 or visiting

If you are outside of the UK you can donate $10 to Unicef by texting ‘Nepal’ to 864233.
