Philippine Red Cross

Philippine Red Cross (PRC) is now preparing assistance to be sent to Nepal. It encourages donors to give cash for faster and more efficient delivery of humanitarian service to affected areas in Nepal.

UNICEF Philippines

UNICEF Philippines encouraged every Filipino to donate any amount they can as there is no such thing as a small donation.

It said the children suffer the most during emergencies and 40% of Nepal's population are children, thus UNICEF Philippines urges Filipinos to donate to help save children's lives.

You may opt to donate a set amount to offer different levels of help or donate your own amount. You can choose to donate in pesos, U.S. dollars, or euros.
