BRAC, the world's largest non-government organisation, plans to spend over $15 million in two years to help earthquake victims in Nepal. “The money will mainly be spent on building houses,” Asif Saleh, senior director of Brac, told The Daily Star. BRAC will begin the initiative with Tk 8 crore of its own funds, and another Tk 2.5 crore will be donated by its employees. The earthquake that struck Nepal in phases in April and this month killed more than 8,500 people. Many countries, including Bangladesh, have since helped the impoverished South Asian country.
