NH looks to aid thousands after Nepal quake


CONCORD - The death toll in Nepal continues to grow, and the emotional aftereffects are hitting hard in New Hampshire, too.

Tsering Lam, owner of Katmandu Bazaar said his family is all safe but now the next stage is survival.

“Food is really important and they are low on daily food supplies," Lam said. "I wish there was something I could do. I feel stuck.”

He is working toward American citizenship, and as badly as he would like to volunteer to help or to visit his family, he said he can't.

“It would take so long to get travel papers, and at that point maybe too late." he said. "I can only do what I can from my store. Maybe I’ll give them what I make in a week.”

He's working toward collecting donations.

“We are working toward collecting clothes and money and looking at sending over volunteers,” Bhgirth Khatiwada, of Bhutanese Community of New Hampshire, said.

The best option right now looks like to donate money, but some said they wanted to make sure their donations end up in the right hands.

We’ve compiled a list of organizations collecting that will get your money where it’s needed most.
