Today you can save lives. Right now an estimated five million people are homeless across Southeast Asia as a result of the deadly tsunami that spread across the Indian Ocean. Most of these people have lost all of their possessions and have little or nothing to eat. Worse yet, many places do not have clean drinking water, nor health and sanitation facilities.
There is a very real danger that thousands more people will die from disease or starvation if relief supplies cannot get to them as soon as possible. Fortunately, thanks to a global outpouring of goodwill, many relief agencies are starting to help the victims. But they need more.
This once-in-a-lifetime disaster will take years to recover from and truly rebuilding lives will require our sustained efforts. So please give whatever you can today to one of the organizations listed below. Your contribution will provide immediate relief and is an investment in the future of millions of people.
International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent
Lutheran World Relief
Catholic Relief Services
World Food Program
