The 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25 devastated communities, families, and towns across the country. Almost a week later, Nepal is still climbing out of the ruins.

To make matters worse, the U.S. Geological Survey forecasts 3 to 14 aftershocks greater than or equal to five in magnitude and a 54 percent chance of a magnitude six or greater earthquake occurring in the coming weeks.

At this time the best way to help Nepal is through monetary donations. There are a variety of nonprofits that are collecting aid donations for disaster relief.

From the American Alpine Club:

“We are aware of numerous AAC members in affected areas, and our partner Global Rescue is engaged in missions to contact, locate, and rescue those in need. If you know of an AAC member in Nepal who is unaccounted for, please notify Global Rescue: 800-381-9754.”
