Helping the Tsunami Victims.

The catastrophic tsunami that hit south east asia is of unprecedented magnitude. The human cost is also of great magnitude. For people willing to help I am posting this contact info:

Trauma, hunger plague survivors
Starvation appears imminent for thousands of tsunami survivors sheltered in tents across Aceh, who are still waiting for humanitarian assistance that has trickled in far too slowly since Sunday's nightmare began.

Although a large number of local and international aid groups have already arrived in the provincial capital of Banda Aceh, the absence of trucks and an insufficient fuel supply to transport the goods and volunteers has apparently been the reason that aid cannot efficiently reach the scattered refugee camps.

Help Aceh
Aceh bre the hardest brunt of the Tsunami.
The ethnic strife torn area with poor infrastructure needs as much help as we can give.
