In the aftermath of a 7.8-magnitude earthquake, Nepal is in desperate need of help.
That’s why the Center for International Studies and Programs at The University of Toledo is teaming up with the American Red Cross and the Nepalese Student Association to assist in any way.
Center officials would like to remind UT students, staff and faculty that counseling services are available at no cost. For more information, visit utoledo.edu/studentaffairs/counseling.
For those with family and friends in Nepal, the American Red Cross has launched a website to help locate people who are safe. The site allows people to search through the list of missing persons and people who have responded that they are alive, register names of persons with whom they have lost contact, and register names of persons who wish to inform others that they are alive.

If you would like to help those in Nepal in their time of need, consider donating to one of several groups that are providing help: the American Red Cross, UNICEF, Mercy Corps and others. For tips on donating, read this NPR article.
