American Red Cross Commits Initial Million Dollars to Help People of Nepal

The American Red Cross is committing an initial million dollars to the Nepal relief operation where hundreds of thousands of families are in dire need after last weekend’s devastating earthquake.

The Nepal Red Cross Society is leading the relief effort, providing first aid and search and rescue support, blood to medical facilities and support to first responders. A priority for the Nepal Red Cross has been to distribute emergency tarpaulins which provide basic shelter. See the full release to learn more about the relief efforts and how you can help.
