    Some of our members have been directly affected by the Sumatra Quake and it's devastating aftermath. In searching for a way to help, I've come across a site with a long list of disaster relief organizations. If you are so inclined, I'm sure they would be most happy to accept any type of donation you can muster. :smile:

    http://www.disasterrelief.org/GiveHelp/

    Please feel free to add any other organizations to the list - especially ones that you have personally dealt with and feel confidant that your assistance has been well 'spent'.

    Also - any of you who may be living this nightmare - if you feel there is an organization over there who is doing an exceptional job in their relief efforts, please tell us who they are and how to donate to them.

    Thank you for your support. :smile: :biggrin:

    Really though, they are going to need a lot of help. This is a catastrophe for millions of people. I just can't get over the scope of this disaster.

    based on what i have seen from previous catastrophes, the Red cross and the Prime minister relief fund are the most effective, because they are the most capable and trustworthy.. but the thing that worries me is how much help northern sri lanka will get, beccause it is controlled by the Tamil Tigers or LTTE or Tamil Eelam,who are considered terrorists by some countries, because they want to be a separate country, but sri lanka has the highest casualties from this incident, so i am just wondering if the LTTE tigers will get help....

    This was discussed on several reports. When a disaster of this magnitude strikes, political barriers tend to fall away. The only concern expressed was whether or not the relief would be accepted.

    I keep wondering if Author C. Clark is okay. He lives in Sri Lanka.
