New Delhi : The team of Social-Networking site Facebook, has rolled out a donate button on Tuesday to help people make contributions for earthquake survivors in Nepal. It said users would see a message at the top of their News Feed with an option to 'Donate' to International Medical Corps.

"Donate to International Medical Corps today and join us in supporting relief efforts - 100% of your donation will go to International Medical Corps and their work in response to the Nepal earthquake. Facebook will also donate $2 million to local relief efforts." Facebook added.

Facebook had also activated its 'Safety Check', a system which allows people in the disaster zone to notify friends and family if they are safe. The feature allows users with Internet access to check in via the application to tell loved ones whether they're safe or not when disasters strike.

At the time the feature was launched, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said Facebook was addressing a need in light of the earthquake and tsunami that rocked Japan in 2011.
