More than 50,000 people died in the October 8 earthquake and millions were displaced. As winter approaches the mountainous area, these people need all kinds of help, including food and shelter.

Personally, I donated to the Edhi Foundation. They don’t have an online presence, but the proceeds of Chapati Mystery’s personal drive will be given to them and Association for the Development of Pakistan also have an Edhi Foundation fund (along with others). If you are in the US, you can mail Edhi Foundation a check (which is what we did) at:
