Tsunami Relief Effort
Young India itself does not have a relief fund but we want to let you know of reputable and trustworthy organizations (see Disclaimer at end of posting) through which you can provide direly needed assistance. The extent of the tragedy is enormous. I'll write more about the on-the-ground reaction in a few days. I am currently in New Delhi where the government is trying its best to cope up with the situation but is falling short of people's expectations. Information is not being appropriately communicated leading to panic. Not to forget the pathetic evacuation job, which was non-existent in most areas. But there will be enough time to point fingers and hold people responsible. Right now people are fighting for sheer survival.
Some links to assist the victims -
* The Hindu Relief Fund (South India's Largest Daily Newspaper)
* AID-India (Association for India's Development)
India Together has an informative site as well - Tsunami Relief
Please donate generously and refer as many people as possible to this site and others that are trying to help the victims. Any and all help is appreciated.
**Disclaimer: Young India cannot receive funds on behalf of any of the organizations listed here. These organizations are not part of or affiliated with Young India in any formal or legal manner, and their inclusion here is not an endorsement by us of their efforts. **
