Indian Ocean Tsunamis

There’s nothing I can say about this horrible disaster, apart from to provide the following link:

Asia Earthquake and Floods Appeal

The Red Cross has launched an emergency appeal in response to the widespread flooding, caused by Sunday’s massive earthquake off the coast of Sumatra. More than 69,000 people are known to have died, thousands more are injured and a million have been displaced from their homes.

The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is at the forefront of the response to this disaster. A British Red Cross logistics team has flown to Sri Lanka, one of the countries most affected by the tidal waves. The logistics team is coordinating the arrival of all Red Cross relief goods being sent to Sri Lanka, ensuring they reach those who need them most.

Emergency supplies such as tarpaulins, blankets, cooking utensils and water purification tablets are still urgently needed.
