Even with low overhead, how does AVA spend 100% of donations on programs overseas?
I've seen your ads on Google. Where does that money come from?

AVA is not a first response charity so how will my donation help?
Why should I donate through AVA instead of larger more widely known charities?
There are lots of great charities that will be helping with disaster relief in Nepal and we believe we can all work together to accomplish our common goals. We strongly suggest you make sure your money will be spent in Nepal and not on high Western wages, external fundraisers or advertising.
