  • Tips for donating to relief campaigns

     

    There is unfortunately lots of mis-and dis-information circulating, and scammers may take advantage of the crisis to take your donations away from communities in need. Here are a few things to keep in mind when donating to support victims of the earthquake: 

    1

    Check information before making a donation.

    Make sure the organization you are donating to has a website or a social media profile. Check payment information on an official source, as images forwarded on WhatsApp, Instagram, etc. can be modified.

    2

    Don't send money to individuals you don't know.

    Unless you know the recipient or someone close to them that you trust, send your donation to a registered organization.

    3

    When it's an option, make your donation via card rather than wire transfer.

    If there is a problem or if you discover that the campaign is a scam, you can contest a card payment, but recovering a wire transfer is much more difficult.

    4

    When it's an option, send money directly to the organization you want to support.
