Tsunami Outreach

Submitted by Jonas M Luster on Thu, 2004-12-30 05:23.

We have found our compassion in this one. Yet, one thing remains and is badly needed, says a friend of mine who just arrived in Sri Lanka and will be contributing what he learned in eight years in Uniform. People. Not the odd-job bystander, not the “activist”, and certainly not the journalist. What is needed most, today, are qualified specialists. Demolitions experts to safely destroy dangerous structures, Doctors, guys and gals who know how to handle a syringe or a gun. The latter is needed more and more as the looting increases and food and medical supplies are being raided by black marketers.

Does anyone know of any legitimate companies that are accepting donations to help the situation?

I think the Red Cross is a pretty safe bet. I just read in the IHT today that they have so much support that the airspace and airstrip are full and it's logistics and coordination that is the biggest problem. They said that the governments are urging not to fly in to help without being self-contained, meaning, food, communications equipment, etc.

We're coordinating a World Wide Ambient Vigil For Aceh
