Coordination with American Conservation Experience
ECCA has made an urgent appeal to a US nonprofit organization, American Conservation Experience, to lead a tent drive. Hundreds of thousands of Nepalese are without shelter. Many are children. The international aid community cannot meet the need for tents. Sending tents is one of the most direct ways that people around the world can help with instant relief. ECCA, which has been on the ground working in Nepal for almost 30 years, is able to distribute tents immediately to families in need.
For those who prefer to donate money, ECCA has a global giving site. Funding on this site will be used to manufacture tents, to support water purification, and distribute food, three of the most urgent needs in our devastated nation. Thank you to the international conservation community and to ACE (https://www.facebook.com/usaconservation) for leading this critical drive to shelter Nepalese victims.
