Heartfelt condolences, thoughts and best wishes with the people of L'Aquila.
Sometimes governments are quick and speedy enough to get things done; other times lumbering bureaucracy and face saving get in the way of helping to rebuild.
There are many ways of keeping up to date with the current level of disasters occurring around the globe, and for more than a five minute hand wringing and further information:
- Relief Web part of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
- International Committee of the Red Cross
- The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC)
Make a difference, get involved.
