How to help the Nepal quake victims

People clear rubble in Kathmandu's Durbar Square

The news daily Mashable compiled a list of agencies that are providing help to the deadly earthquake victims in Nepal which killed thousands so far.

A massive 7.8-magnitude earthquake rocked Nepal on Saturday, killing over 1,900 in the country and dozens more in surrounding nations. Seventeen bodies were recovered on Mount Everest base camp and 61 were injured when part of the base camp was engulfed by the snowslide.

Several buildings collapsed in Nepal's capital of Kathmandu, including the historic Dharaha tower. The poor quality of buildings in the Kathmandu Valley, which has a population of 2.5 million people, makes them susceptible to extensive damage.

They have rounded up the following list of organizations that are helping victims in Nepal and other affected areas, which you can support:
