Kathmandu had already hit the headlines worldwide. ‘Whole streets and squares in the capital of more than one million people were covered in rubble. Stunned residents stared at temples that were once part of their daily lives and now were reduced to nothing,” wrote CNN a day after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Locals call it earthquake 72 as this year is 2072 in the Nepalese calendar.

In the early days there were already estimates that the rural areas were badly hit but the mountains hid the worst of the effects.

Since the Irish Red Cross launched its Nepal Earthquake Appeal 24 hours after the Himalayan country was struck by 7.8-magnitude tremor, the needs of victims have evolved.
 
Nepal donations were primarily used to provide basic supplies such as food, water purifier tabs, tarpaulins and medicine at the outset.
 
But the needs of survivors have begun to change. They still need the basics for physical survival but the Nepal earthquake took a psychological toll.
 
When people become parted from their loved ones or see their households and incomes wrecked, they need counselling so they can focus on helping themselves.
 
When you donate to our Nepal Earthquake Appeal your pay for experts in psychosocial support and tracing to travel and help people cope with their loss and locate the missing.
 
So when the Red Cross Movement launched our Nepal Earthquake Appeal, we asked for cash donations rather than supplies.
 
The cost of transporting people with professional expertise into Nepal and out to affected areas is monetary. Flights, gasoline, vehicles are paid for locally which means your Nepal donations also give much-needed support to the local economy.
 
This also applies to replacing the basic stocks that were distributed when the Nepal earthquake first struck.

How users behave on google when doing #nepal related searches.
 
People around the world are searching for ways to help #Nepal, as shown in this chart of searches for ‘Nepal’ and ‘help’ in various languages in the earthquake’s aftermath. For our part, we’ve launched Person Finder to help people find family and friends affected by the disaster, and we’ve made calls to Nepal from anywhere in the world 1¢/min (normally 19¢/min) to help people connect. We chose 1¢/min, instead of making calls free, to prevent spammers abusing the offer and adding more load to the already stretched Nepalese telephone network. More info at: goo.gl/EqocGu
