Nepal Earthquake Relief
IUPUI expresses our condolences to all those affected by the Nepal earthquake on April 25, 2015.
Victims of the earthquake are currently running short on basic supplies including food, drinking water, blankets, medicines, and other essential emergency supplies. The United States government has already issued a disaster declaration for Nepal, and international communities and organizations have extended their help to Nepal, but more is needed.
