Bangladesh Cyclone: How Can You Help?

A Category 10 cyclone has hit Bangladesh's southern region, which is home to 10 million people! According to the Daily Star At least 496 people were killed and thousands but tolls are expected to increase. An estimated half a million people are in shelters.

I am compiling a list of organizations that are accepting donations and working with displaced people. I will update the list as I find more information:

Bangladesh Red Crescent Society

Save the Children – US

International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies

If you know of other organizations please add their names and link in the comments section.
