May 04, 2015

The ADA Foundation is accepting donations to aid dentists and others providing dental care in the aftermath of the April 25 earthquake in Nepal.

The 7.8 magnitude earthquake occurred approximately 50 miles northwest of Kathmandu, Nepal, according to the U.S. Department of State. Some 4,350 people died as of April 28 due to the disaster, and officials anticipated at press time that the toll would climb, according to information on USAID.gov.

The United Nations estimates that the earthquake will affect 8 million people across 39 of Nepal's 75 districts. The most severely affected areas include Bhaktapur, Dhading, Dolakha, Kathmandu, Kavre, Lalitpur, Nuwakot, Ramechhap, Rasuwa and Sindulpalchowk districts in Nepal's Central Region, as well as Gorkha District in Nepal's Western Region.

Donations for Nepal disaster relief may be made here or by sending a check to ADA Foundation, 211 E. Chicago Ave., Suite 2100, Chicago, IL 60611.

For Nepal earthquake relief, write "Nepal" in the memo field of checks.
