      Hallo, I can give you now info on the IRFF initiative for South East Asia relief effort.

      IRFF USA has started a relief emergency action with one of our long time partners, Christian Disaster Relief (CDR); in Europe IRFF and SFP is helping with that initiative and is also examining the possibility of a long term commitment. At the moment SFP send 23 volunteers to Thailand. See below for details

      ===============================================================



      IRFF is activating a "Phase 1 Relief Initiative" in partnership with CDR and the World Association of Non-Governmental Organization (WANGO) - see below message.



      IRFF Europe is also looking at the possibilities of long term help, and that will be the area in which I will be more involved, beside helping the "Phase 1 relief initiative".



      Phase 2 will demand long term involvement: for the reconstruction of home, small businesses, restoration of schools, hospitals, recreation centers and so on.



      I contact you to know if you would like to join with IRFF Europe and SFP in this phase 2 initiative, beside also giving a contribution for the phase 1 (follow the instructions below).

      Help for South Asia




      Thousands of Victims of the South Asia Tsunami/Earthquake Need Our Help!

      The World Association of Non-Governmental Organizations (WANGO) has formed a partnership with two relief organizations with years of experience in international disasters. They are the International Relief Friendship Foundation (IRFF) and Christian Disaster Response (CDR), both of whom are members of WANGO.

      CDR has already begun organizing volunteer response teams that will receive training before going to the disaster zone. In addition, lists of the relief supplies that are most needed are being compiled at this very moment to be purchased near the affected region to both minimize costs and help the region recover more quickly economically.

      We need your help, though, if we are to respond effectively. The most efficient way to help right now is through cash donations. Please be assured that 100% of the funds donated will be used for the disaster relief. WANGO, IRFF, and CDR are nonprofit, tax-exempt corporations. Together, we can make a difference.

      Payment Information:

      Check. Checks can be written payable to WANGO, noting in the memo line Tsunami Disaster Relief, and mailed to WANGO, 155 White Plains Road, Suite 205, Tarrytown, NY 10591.

      RESPOND TO QUAKE VICTIMS NOW!

      By: Dr. Kathy Winings

      (December 30, 2004)
      IRFF, CDR AND WANGO RESPOND TO QUAKE SURVIORS
      WE NEED YOUR HELP TODAY!

      The people of South Asia have been devastated by one of the largest earthquakes in history. With the death toll at around 80,000 and still climbing, families throughout the affected area of 9 countries are trying to put their lives back together. The INTERNATIONAL RELIEF FRIENDSHIP FOUNDATION (IRFF), CHRISTIAN DISASTER RESPONSE (CDR), WOMAN FEDERATION FOR WORLD PEACE (WFWP) and the WORLD ASSOCIATION OF NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS (WANGO) are working together with local organizations and communities to develop a plan of action for both the emergency and recovery phase of the relief effort.

      Beyond the count of approximately 80,000 dead, officials estimate that more than 50,000 people have been injured and hundreds of thousands are now homeless. The survivors are living in a daze as they struggle to find food, safe drinking water and shelter as well as stave off disease that could run rampant through the region if unchecked.

      IRFF, CDR, and WANGO are preparing to provide, emergency medical assistance, food and water purification equipment at this initial stage. In that effort, they have issued an urgent appeal for funds, in-kind donations and volunteers in order to provide life-saving assistance to the quake survivors.

      Contributions may be made on the IRFF site through the Donations page - http://www.irff.org/donations/ - then just select the Disaster button. - or easier, go straight to http://www.irff.org/donations/donations.php

      Or financial donations may be sent to:

      IRFF, 155 White Plains Road, Ste. 204, Tarrytown, NY 10591

      Or call us in the US at: +1.917.319-6802

      Email us: executivedirector@... or IRFFint@...



      Thank you for your support. Together, we can reach those in need.
