Condolences For Those In Asia

Following the worlds worst earthquake recorded in the last 40 years the tsunami which followed has killed up to 23,000 people so far. The effect of the tidal waves has been devastating so my thoughts go out to the families and friends of all of those who have been affected.

If you local news has not been reporting this then you can find more here.

Ditto!

I've been trying to read up on what's going on as I haven't heard or seen any broadcast news for a few days.

Ditto here too We've been watching CNN most of the day. It's so hard to get your head around.. that many lives lost in one fell swoop.

Very tragic

There is very little information regarding the survivors but according to a BBC report:-
Quote:
In Sri Lanka, a crisis centre has been set up to handle calls from concerned relatives and can be reached on 00 94 11 437 061 and 00 94 11 474 0220. Inquiries can also be e-mailed to sltourism@yahoo.com
There is also, apparnetly, a website for a hospital in Phuket which lists those being treated but I have yet to find the address.

If anyone wishes to make donations, to help in the relief effort, it can be done here on the Red Cross Red Crescent site. But be aware that the site is slow to load, hopefully because a lot of people are donating.

I have dug up a few more links after finding the Phuket hospital website.

For those who are looking for family and friends there is a forum set up here:-
http://www.phuketpc.com/forum/

The Phuket hospital has links to lists of those who are being treated and they can be found at the top of this page:-
http://www.phuket-inter-hospital.co.th/siriroj.html

The list of all injured is not just those at the Phuket hospital so it takes a while to load.

I signed up as a 'global neighbour' for an organisation known as "Save The Children" a few months back.

Today I received an email from them with a weblink to a donation site...

If anyone wishes to donate to the cause through "Save The Children" follow this link.
