We've been discussing it in the main chat thread, Wilma.
We sponsor a little girl who lives right near the epicenter. I haven't heard anything yet, which is hard, but I certainly understand. I've contributed through the ministry that is already on the ground there (and has been for many years), providing aid. I was glad to hear today that they have clean well water, and they are distributing it.
Another good ministry I like is Samaritan's Purse, and they are also on the ground now providing aid.
Doctors Without Borders seems like a great organization, too.
It's frustrating that so many groups want to help and can't.
We've had a search and rescue unit stationed here at Wright-Patt AFB set to go each day, and they've been deferred over and over. I know it's a logistics issue, but it's still frustrating. They could be finding people and saving them!
ETA: Here's the latest report from Samaritan's Purse:
Weâ€™ve got more planes coming in each day with medicine, equipment, and personnel on board. We will have three to four flights a day now for the remainder of this week. Weâ€™re going to have enough material for 6,000 temporary shelters by the end of next week. Water is a tremendous issue. By the end of next week weâ€™ll be able to produce close to a half-million gallons of fresh water a day.
