Nepal has dominated the headlines this week following a devastating earthquake, which at the time of press, had already claimed the lives of more than 4,000 people. The Red Cross has committed an initial $300,000 of aid as well as an additional 19,000 non-food relief kits including essential items such as clothes and mosquito nets. Members of the bitcoin community, in Nepal and around the globe, have also rallied around the cause, seeking to provide both needed aid and a reminder of how bitcoin can help charitable efforts lower the cost of accepting international donations. See Change Foundation founder Erik Bouchard, for example, confirmed that his organisation has so far received over 100 bitcoin donations in 36 hours, "ranging from $1 to $100 [per donation]". The Nepal-based charity is seeking donations to cover the costs of providing short-term housing units to those affected by the earthquake. More than 740 homes, he said, have been destroyed in his small district, at the epicentre of the quake alone. Donations will also be used to help pay towards a blood drive, medical care, transportation and lodging. Bouchard was well-suited to tap this funding stream, noting that the decision to accept bitcoin donations via BitPay in November last year followed requests by the technology's passionate Reddit community.
Bitcoin-focused non-profit, the BitGive Foundation, is accepting bitcoin donations on behalf of Medic Mobile's Nepal's office, which then cashes them out into fiat using bitcoin payment processor BitPay. Medic Mobile, co-founded by Josh Nesbit, a former pre-medical undergraduate student at Stanford University, offers a software that enables healthcare professionals to collect data, analytics and send messages in remote areas. Companies in the international cryptocurrency space have also reacted to Nepal's earthquake by coordinating donation campaigns.


To donate on Twitter, users must first sync a bitcoin wallet and transfer the desired funds to their ChangeTip account. The funds, while still a small part of the relief effort, however, are clearly appreciated, and as evidenced by on-the-ground reports, much needed. Microsoft is still accepting and crediting bitcoin payments amid reports that the tech giant is moving away from the digital currency.
Dallas-based precious metals dealer JM Bullion is now accepting bitcoin through bitcoin processor BitPay. One of the biggest events in the annual tech calendar has passed with only a minor presence from bitcoin or blockchain industry firms. BitPay is among four new partners joining Microsoft's forthcoming blockchain-as-a-service offering on its Azure platform.
The Red Cross arrived to find a scene of utter devastation: 11 people had been killed and many were injured. Hundreds of livestock were buried alive in the quake, which has left many rural families without any way of earning a living. Given the risk from infectious diseases, making sure people get clean water and sanitation in the coming days will be critical. Right now, the Red Cross is working hard to get basic necessities out to isolated communities – including tarpaulins, blankets, cooking utensils and hygiene kits. Villagers have had no option but to begin the mammoth clean-up operation using only basic farming tools and their bare hands.
Nepal is one of the world’s poorest countries and not equipped to deal with a crisis this big.


In Nepal, rural communities really are cut off from the rest of the world – a third of the population lives more than two hours walk from the nearest all-season road. Landslides and damaged roads have made it difficult to reach rural and mountainous communities, but relief convoys are getting through – and more urgent distributions are planned over the coming days. Mark brings you all the latest stories, news and quirky details about the Red Cross' work in the UK.
Nepalese rescue members move the body of a victim from the collapsed Dharahara Tower in Kathmandu. The American Red Cross has launched a fundraising campaign through iTunes to raise money for relief. The Red Cross has also activated their Family Links site where family members can search through the list of missing persons or register loved ones who are known to be in Nepal.
Meanwhile, online fundraising platform Global Giving has already raised approximately $570,000 as part of an attempt to raise $1m to support victims. Most of the population depends on agriculture to earn a living, and an estimated 40 per cent of people live in poverty. Our relief response is focussing on the most vulnerable – such as children, young mothers and the elderly.
