If there's no urgent aid, the millions who were displaced from their homes are at risk from disease/death too.
Is there a donation drive being started in Singapore?
How about we start one?
We meet up during SEED donate cash/food/canned food and give to someone from the Sri Lankan embassy or to someone who will be going there?

Relief - Sri Lanka
Members of the Forum,
We have received a plea for aid from Sri Lanka Airlines for a list of emergency items needed for the survivors of the recent disaster.
We at FiNS have already made arrangements for medical supplies to be sent to Sri Lankan Airlines so that the items can be airlifted to the people who need it most.
We are in turn asking the members of the forum to help in this. The items that are most keenly needed are:
2. Food (Pre-cooked or ready-to-eat meal packs)
3. Water Purification Tablets
4. Wheat Flour, rice, other staples
5. Drugs: Paracetamol, anti-biotics, wound dressing, suture material, disposable syringes, vitamins, and vaccinations for diarrhea, cholera and malaria.
6. Intravenous infusions (saline and dextrose)
7. Portable generators
For small parcels/items, please have them sent to the Sri Lankan Airlines office at 133 Cecil Street, Keck Seng Tower, #13-02, Singapore 069535.
For medium-sized and large donations, contact Sri Lankan Airlines email@example.com and a staff member will make arrangements to collect items from your office either with their personal vehicles or with a logistics operator.
We will be contacting the Indian and Indonesian authorities as well. If anyone in the forum knows a contact there who will be willing to accept the help of the diver community, do let me know.
Thank you, one and all.

This week's edition of The Economist has a very amusing article on "the end of the world". Amusing for people who don't believe in that sort of rubbish anyway Always good to have a laugh at their expense ...

We should really feel lucky about this.
My room mate is from Sri Lanka, and he's absolutely devastated by this. Never has a natural disaster strike his country in recent history, and his uncle, i heard fled in time but his house is now gone....
I have friends in Krabi, but I really don't know if they are alright....

The logic goes: "Dripping water bores through rocks."
Imagine if its a wall of water almost 20ft high.

Everytime I reload CNN the toll goes up. now its 26,000.
Even more despairing;1/3 of those dead are kids, because they don't have the strength or capacity to hold on to poles or anything at hand.
