Mourning for The West Sumatra Earth Quake Victims

As some of you may already know, a 7.6 on Richter Scale earthquake hit West Sumatra on Wednesday, September 30th, 2009. At least 788 people have been reported killed, thousands more are still trapped under the rubbles of destroyed buildings. Indonesians from other parts of the country have organized and conducted fund raising and relief efforts for the victims of the quake. Generous solidarity has also been shown by our friends from many parts of the world. All out rescue and relief efforts are continuing.

If you would like to help, donation for the relief efforts of the 2009 Sumatra Earthquake can be made through Indonesian Red Cross/Crescent or Red Cross/Crescent in your respective countries or any other relevant agencies near you.

Thank you. God bless you.
