Get in touch with Skills and Care, based in Woolwich

Skills and Care director Bivek Shrestha has flown to Nepal to work with a team of nurses from Greenwich and volunteers.

On their appeal page, it says: "In Greenwich we have an estimated Nepalese population of at least 6,000 - our friends and our neighbours, who are all affected by this tragedy.

"We have been working with the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Nepalese Nursing Association and Gurkha communities across Greenwich to coordinate a massive relief effort from here in Woolwich Town Hall.

"In one week, we have collected vital medical and relief supplies. Collected in Greenwich, delivered to Nepal."

Below you can see what Bivek has been doing to help:

Get in touch with Greenwich Council

The council is working directly with a number of charities and organisations to get aid to the worst hit areas.

There was a huge drive to collect items following the first earthquake, but the focus is now on raising money to ensure the items and aid gets to where it's needed.

Our very own estate managers Canary Wharf Group has already donated £3,000 to the appeal.
