While many have volunteered to be a part of the rescue operations, others have contributed by sending supplies and making monetary donations.
Amidst all this Bollywood actor Manisha Koirala, who hails from Nepal has said that it saddens her to see that people are trying to make money from these funds meant for victims and has warned people of such organisations.
"I have been warned that a lot of organisations would be misusing this situation so I request everyone who wants to help to please double check the accountability then only offer help," said a post on her Facebook page.
She added that all those who want to go to Nepal and want to help must bear in mind that there are already a lot of people there and that there is shortage of food and water.
