Thank you for giving that link to Oxfam...

I hope that my donation will reach the people quickly.

Let us all make good use of this!!
I trust there are many other organisations that will provide help, maybe someone has got other links to put in here...

These days people are shopping like there is no tomorrow... just thinking about the difference this money could make for thousands of people who right now have lost everything. Thousands whose life was suddenly taken, thousands who have lost their loved ones.  Money can't bring their lives back, but I have decided to boycott the SALE and any unnecessary purchases...

Sri Lankan tsunami survivor

Friend to tormentor

I have always lived by the sea. It was our friend and provider. But now it frightens me.
Earlier, the sound of the waves were like music to my ears. Now I have nightmares of waves crashing into my home and taking us away. I never knew the sea could be so destructive.

But despite everything, I still love the sea. I am an islander - I can never run too far away from the ocean.
