The earthquake in Nepal registered a magnitude of 7.8 and as of Monday, April 27, 2015, had claimed more than 4,000 lives and left almost 1 million children in need of humanitarian relief, according to UNICEF.
As with many of the natural disasters that have befallen the world in recent years, Nepal is not the wealthiest country, leaving its residents even more vulnerable during such horrific events.
Save the Children – The international charity has been working in Nepal for almost 40 years.
Red Cross – The group has already committed $300,000 of aid to the earthquake in Nepal relief efforts.
Global Giving – An online giving platform, they are hoping to raise $1 million for disaster relief. Oxfam – They work in 90 countries around the world and are assessing the situation in Nepal, as well as Tibet, which the earthquake also affected. Goonj – An Indian relief agency, has set up Nepal-focused donation centers in several cities and are preparing trucks and planes of supplies.


Despite the best efforts of all of these humanitarian relief groups, helping those affected by the earthquake in Nepal may be challenging.
According to The New York Times, more than 2,200 people have died from Saturday's massive quake and Nepal has reported several aftershocks, including one that had a magnitude of 6.7. Recently one of the most horrible natural disasters that can affect humanity, hit our peaceful neighboring country of Nepal.
The Nepal earthquake death toll is over 4,600 and going up every day and as horrible as it may sounds, while rescue work continues the likelihood of finding more people alive gets lesser with each passing day.
The images from the devastation caused by the Nepal earthquake are terribly heartbreaking to say the least. With the death toll continuing to mount –by Monday, April 27, it had risen to more than 4,000 –the people of Nepal will be in desperate need of humanitarian relief in the days, weeks and months ahead.
Consider discussing the impact natural disasters have on our world, particularly the Nepal earthquake, for your next research paper.


Bill Chappell posted about the ramifications of the earthquake in Nepal in “More Than 4,000 Dead In Nepal As Earthquake Toll Rises” April 27, 2015, for NPR.org. Many of the people of Nepal are upset that more had not been done previously to reinforce buildings and structures for natural disasters. I was walking through that very area where that earthquake was and I thought at the very time that the area was heading for trouble. The tremors were so strong that they were felt in India too and while much lower; India too had people dying in this earthquake. Additionally, the earthquake in Nepal caused “a massive avalanche that buried climbers at the Mount Everest base camp,” Chappell wrote.
