Be cautious with your forwards

The first thing you can do is staying calm. Within an hour of the hit, a flurry of posts on social media and messaging platforms claimed another, more powerful earthquake was set to strike India and neighbouring countries. A lot of scary devastating and catastrophic calamities are hitting the earth and shaking its mere existence. NEPAL is trying to cope, people are losing loved ones, people are dying, they are panicking, running about and seeing their houses get destroyed and losing their loved ones in front of their own eyes, they are trying to live despite all this.. Somehow, hoping and keeping faith that things will mellow down. The least we can do is be cautious in our forwards and posts so as not to cause further panic when we are in no position to lessen the panic.

Gather your friends and relatives, collect fund and prepare to send medicines and food packets and drinking water to the affected areas.

Make a good use of the social media

The role of social media in disaster management has been huge in the past. Each disaster finds its way on social media for information exchange. Social media is filling the void where cell services are lost. World has turned to Facebook, Twitter, and Google to stay informed, contact loved ones, notify authorities, and express support. I so very appreciate how Facebook is doing its bit to help the people of Nepal. From the security check to this donation initiative. Donate my typing #SupportNepal on facebook search.

Our prayers are with the people of Nepal and all affected by this tragedy. Hope God gives them enough strength to fight for lives.
