I am deeply saddened by the devastation and loss of life from the earthquake and tsunami which struck southeast Asia on Sunday morning. The New York Times reports the death toll is more than 23,000 with one third being children. It is hard to think about anything else today. I just learned that a close friend left a Thailand resort with his wife and children just two days before it was wiped out by the tidal waves.
The Southeast Asia Earthquake and Tsunami Blog has been set up to give people ideas on how they can help with donations and to make them aware of various relief efforts and the latest news. Paidcontent.org’s author Rafat Ali is safe in India; editor Staci gives good advice for those wanted to help with donations.
May God bless all who lost loved ones in this tragedy and may He strengthen all those who are providing relief to those who are suffering.
