The Rush To Rescue
With tens of thousands trapped in rubble, the toll of the massive China quake will not be known for months, but the need for medical care and supplies is urgent and will only grow larger. My friends at Caring for China have established a special fund for earthquake relief. As I said on yesterday’s show, these professionals have been operating orphanages, clinics and schools in the earthquake region for two decades. Any help you send them will be at work in China before week’s end:
Caring For China is establishing an Earthquake Relief Fund to assist the victims of the Central China Earthquake of May 12, 2008. To donate to this fund, go to http://www.CaringForChina.org and go to “Donations”. The link will give you several options, including PayPal, which is quite easy. Caring For China will send you a tax deductible receipt and you will be automatically put on Caring For China‘s newsletter list. The list is not distributed to anyone else, and you may opt out at any time.
We thank you for your heartfelt concern for the people who have suffered in this natural disaster, and for acting so quickly to do something about it. The funds will be wired to Central China where they will be distributed by our local staff to those in most need. Please contact us if you have any questions concerning our organization or our mission.
Thus far there is no report of injury to any of the children at the orphanages though at least one of them has been evacuated with the children outside while the building is checked for safety.
