Neowin Appeal : Help Tsunami Victims

Source : BBCReuters is now reporting that 120,000+ people are dead as a result of the tsunami that hit countries on Boxing Day. There are tens of thousand of people still un-accounted for, and the real figure could be much much higher. Hundreds of thousands of people are still at serious risk from disease and they desperately need your help and support. In all, as many as five million people are without homes.

Please, spare what you can. International Aid Organisations can make a difference. They need your donations urgently. With donations, they can help get vital supplies like clean water and drugs to the places most badly hit.

This is a tragedy on a global scale and badly needs a strong global response. More information on how you can best help can be found here. You can donate direct to Sarvodaya, a charity dealing with one of the worst hit countries, Sri Lanka, via Paypal, here. Another Sri Lanki based charity accepting Paypal donations is Karuna.

Update : Neowin member noneneed has written up his person experience of the tsunami on the west coast of Malaysia; he luckily survived. Read it here.
