Engineering charities call for support following Nepal earthquake

Charities providing vital engineering support to communities in Nepal have appealed to the sector for support and donations.

With the death toll increasing following Saturday’s earthquake, the immediate work is focused on search and rescue.

RedR has said its India arm has already deployed members with specialist engineering skills. It is also conducting an emergency needs assessment in order to develop and deliver a longer-term response. It is asking engineering firms with a presence in Nepal to get in touch if they think they could be of help.

It is currently seeking donations to help it establish the most urgent shelter, water, medical, rebuilding and structural engineering needs. Donations can be made online by typing Nepal into the field asking what prompted the donation.

Care International is also appealing to the engineering community for support and donations. Its work includes sending engineers out to disaster zones to carry out relief and rebuilding work. Donations can also be made online.
