Update August 13, 2009

Jon Ross on Aug 13th 2009


As Typhoon Morakot has left a path of devastation in Taiwan and Eastern China, a lot of the world’s humanitarian resources are headed in that direction.  As you know, at MicroAid, we remain focused on victims in other areas where people are left behind.  We are still trying to raise $52,000 to help people in Sri Lanka who were devastated by the tsunami in 2004.  And we are preparing to help the unassisted victims of the cyclone that crashed into Myanmar in 2008.

Of course, the humanitarian community has to react to the disaster at hand, but it is important to remember those who remain in need in other places. Down the road, after the big organizations move on to the next big disaster, MicroAid will help those in Tawain and Eastern China.

Please donate to MicroAid so we can help.  Any amount will make a difference.

Thank you so much.

Sincerely,

Jon
