Crowdsourcing saves lives in Nepal

Money from strangers, not the government, is helping to provide better medical services for Nepal's poor.

    It is known as crowdsourcing: using the internet to appeal for donations from as many people as possible.
     
    And it is usually a way to fund personal projects such as films or charity events.
     
    But in Nepal, crowdsourcing is being used to provide essential health services.
