Talk: Mercy Corps' impact in Nepal

The massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal in April was the worst in more than 80 years. Moved by the desire to help families and communities in Nepal recover and rebuild, Googlers stepped forward with support ranging from donations, to travel fund allocations, to Googlers’ volunteering their time working with organizations on the ground in Nepal. Google partnered with Mercy Corps, a leading global humanitarian organization with extensive operations in Nepal. Craig Redmond, Mercy Corps’ Senior Vice President of Programs, shares insights from the first six months of response efforts, from powerful stories of lives changed as well as innovations that fueled Mercy Corps response.
