The death toll in Nepal’s recent devastating earthquake could reach into the tens of thousands. Thousands more survivors desperately need aid as homes and buildings lie in rubble, many in remote villages.

Anyone who has been trekking in this beautiful country knows the word namaste, the Sanskrit greeting you receive from almost every Nepalese you pass on the trail. It means “I bow to you” or “I salute the spirit within you,” acknowledging a divine consciousness within everyone.

The Nepalese people are unforgettable, and we should not forget them now in their time of need.

Here are some places where you can donate money where the aid goes directly to local relief workers on the ground in Nepal:

MercyCorps

AmeriCares

Planeterra Foundation

Educate the Children International 

For additional ideas on where to contribute, go to the StrideTravel.com blog, which includes Planeterra among the organizations set up by tour companies that provide aid and have close ties with the Nepalese people. These organizations are all doing good work there, and in most cases, 100 percent of your donation will go directly to relief efforts.

Thank you.
