    • Search for the Nepal flood victims in the website or directly from google.
    • You can donate from the one you feel genuine, look for the genuineness of the fund raiser, with the supporting organizations and their words for how they will use the fund.
  4. If you are in Nepal and you want to help the flood victims by donating online. Upcoming movie Dui Rupaiya team ( Actor/ Director Nischal Basnet and Asif shah) have started this campaign in association with eSewa: the first digital payment platform of Nepal.
    • For this, you need to go a new website called donation.esewa.com.np and start donating. It will be easy if you already have eSewa account.
    • Otherwise you can have one account by sending a message REG to 2121. You also need to load the amount from your bank account (either mobile banking or online banking). Then you can donate the amount through that website.

Like previously, the telecom operators may also launch the fund raising from their mobile account or recharge card itself. But Ntc and Ncell have not launched this fund raiser campaign yet.

Among them, we prefer the ones from Engineers and the eSewa’s new donation portal, for the online transfer. Whereas in case of abroad, you need to select one from the fundraising campaigns that you can trust. One international funding campaign that we trust is from gofundme. You can even select others as specified above or googling. So, please help the flood victims in any way, as soon as possible. Terai needs you!!! #HelpTerai.
