One of the first things I realized when I started looking at how I can contribute to the relief and rescue effort, was that there is no central website where you could find information on what to donate, where to donate and who to donate to. The same thought was echoed by many other people. Information on earthquake preparation, earthquake facts and quake recovery was abundant for other earthquake zones, such as Japan and California, but I found no such thing specific to this region.
My group of friends decided to combine all our efforts in working on such a site and we have spent the last couple of days on this. It’s still a work in progress, but we are updating it as fast as possible. Though there are a number of sites dedicated to the relief operation, our aim is also to provide a comprehensive guide to disaster preparation and recovery that will be valid well into the future.
I have yet to add information about preparation and other facts, though there is already a listing of aid organizations. The organizations currently listed are all international ones and a listing of local aid agencies will follow shortly.
