Our hearts go out to the many communities devastated by the tragic earthquake and aftershocks that struck Nepal and the surrounding areas on Saturday. United Way Worldwide has established the Nepal Earthquake Recovery Fund with a focus on long-term recovery and relief. United Way network partners in the immediate region, with support from United Way Worldwide, will look to work with partners in the public and private sectors to help the impacted people and communities with recovery and rebuilding efforts. Donations to the fund can be made online.
