Typhoon Haiyan

Postby Kim OHara » Tue Nov 12, 2013 7:37 am

The numbers are staggering - a storm 600km across, winds over 350km/hr, 10 million people affected, perhaps 10,000 dead.
Read about it here -
This Huff Post article lists aid agencies helping the recovery effort and provides links to them ...

... and I do hope we can extend our compassion to them.

Thanks Kim,
It is shocking.
I encourage anyone with the means and volition to donate to a reputable aid organisation.
Every little bit helps.
With metta,
Ben

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
