Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund



The dollars our community has donated to Federation's emergency Nepal emergency's relief fund are hard at work on the ground.  Federation’s partner agency, IsraAID, in addition to setting up a field hospital in Katmandu, has sent an emergency medical team to remote Tar village where more than 120 people lost their lives and 95% of the houses were destroyed. You can still donate to ongoing relief efforts. 100% of donated funds will go directly to humanitarian aid. Thank you for your generous support.
