Dear all:

I have started this forum with the aim of consolidating information about how/where to donate time/money/food/medications/money to NGOs, government, relief agencies, etc. who are involved with tsunami relief efforts.

I have locked it so that I (and other moderators) update it with information as it comes through different fora; and avoid duplication and scattered information.

Please keep posting in language-specific fora all the info you have about your countries and keep using http://www.proz.com/topic/27926 if you want to know details about certain links you will find here or if you want to discuss strategies in detail.

If you have info. that you think should be here, send it along.

THANK YOU all for your help and positive vibes. Thank you all for providing help and links!!
