Another earthquake struck Nepal on Tuesday, just three weeks after the massive 7.8 quake that killed more than 8,000 people. Tuesday’s 7.3 temblor already caused a rising number of deaths, and flattened some buildings, which had withstood the previous earthquake.
Below is the original post with a list of relief organizations working to help Nepal.

Many aid organizations are working in the region to help with rescue and recovery. CNN has a good list of what each charity is doing in Nepal. Charity Navigator has a list of organizations working in Nepal, which have high ratings for effective work.
