The enormity of this thing has me not even wanting to turn on the news on TV; it’s so numbing. I’m amazed at the number of resources outlined on the web site you cited. It’s kind of hard to know just where to direct personal aid. I wonder if the CRWRC is equipped and effective in this kind of a situation? I’ll call them tomorrow to find out.
I know what you mean; it’s almost too much to take in.
I’m not sure how effective they are, but here is information from a press release that the CRWRC provided on their website:
My entire body shrivels with the thoughts of the devestation, and I have been reading the Times like a maniac, scouring it for any info on how to help. There is a list on http://www.nytimes.com
of at least 12 aid agencies taking donations. As with any other tragedy, relief networks are grateful for any help, but at this point, money is the preferred form of aid.
The Times printed a story of a 5 day old baby found floating on a door of a demolished hotel; the lad was alive, amazingly, and despite my questioning of God as to the reason for this calamity, I found this story full of grace somehow.
