The death toll is past 2000 as Nepal digs out from their worst earthquake since 1934.  Thousands upon thousands more are feared dead throughout the region.

Durbar Square in Kathmandu

Durbar Square today.

A Shiva Puja performed by a very young Brahman priest on the steps of the Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu in 2007.  It is impossible to know what has become of all of these people in this clip.  We can only hope for the best and wish them well.  According to news reports, the temple is damaged but still stands.  Other ancient temples in the city were leveled.

Donations for earthquake relief in Nepal can be made though Oxfamamerica.

Through The American Red Cross (You may donate specifically to Nepal relief or to 'Where it is neeeded most,' or to both)

Through Episcopal Relief and Development.
