It is such a poor country it must be hard to coordinate all the disaster relief

There are some Japanese organizations working in Nepal with local organizations/communities, to which I've gladly donated.

I'm worried about the pollution from cremating all those bodies! Generally, Nepalese will cremate along the shores of a river and then sweep any remaining ashes, bones, etc, into the water.

How will they handle over 5000 bodies?

Well, I hope all the aid gets to the people and not to the government or corruption like the Philippines disaster or Haiti

At this point it seems that they are overwhelmed with people and underfunded. Thanks, Naoko.

Good that lessons were learned after the debacle coordinating aid in Haiti. I'm sure there will be more lessons learned after this disaster.

The same thing that happened in New Orleans and again in Haiti and just about everywhere else lately is happening in Nepal. The funds and supplies donated get tied up in red tape. Then they conveniently disappear. A small percentage reaches the people in need. That's the way it's always been.

In Nepal's case, the real obstacles such as distructed roads do hinder the rescue operations. But I decided not to donate the charities that say they donate the money to the Embassy of Nepal in Japan. Kind of sad, though.
