Tsunami Relief Information

The blog below gives information about relief efforts for the tsunami victims. It also has links (scroll down a bit) to many organizations including Oxfam, Save The Children and CARE taking donations.

Update: Landmines a danger to tsunami survivors in Sri Lanka. "Mines were floated by the floods and washed out of known mine fields, so now we don't know where they are, and the warning signs on mined areas have been swept away or destroyed, UNICEF's Ted Chaiban said from the agency's office in Colombo in a statement released at UN headquarters in New York. The greatest danger to civilians will come when they begin to return to their homes, not knowing where the mines are,” Chaiban added."
