April 25, 2015 Earthquake in Nepal
In an effort to support rescue efforts in Nepal, we are collecting donations through Brown's Global Heath Initiative (GHI) Fund for Nepal. These donations will provide support for projects that are developed in partnership with local organizations, with a focus on Nepal’s long-term reconstruction. The GHI-supported projects will build on research conducted by Brown faculty and students. Your contribution to the recovery will aid in a systematic and structural process to take place over the long term.
Make a donation online through Giving to Brown or via check.
Checks can be made out to Brown University with the designation “GHI Fund for Nepal”, and sent to:
