Sikkim – donate, volunteer, help

The earthquake in Sikkim on the 18th September 2011 has created massive devastation. North Sikkim has been destroyed on a massive scale. This is a time to use your vacation time and money to go to Sikkim with help in your heart. The destruction has dwarfed the constant pouring of money and effort into rescue and rehabilitation and many people are still to receive assistance. With thousands of homes obliterated, and winter around the corner, the goal of rehabilitation is challenging and overwhelmingly large. Last night, yet another smaller earthquake rocked the region. In the midst of all this, rescue workers are fighting to save lives. Many Indians are generously asking for where they can donate, but there is more that can be done. It isn’t just about money, it is about getting work done. Consider trying to see what all you can do, rather than think of how much money you can give alone. Presenting here the needs, the organizations on the ground that can be supported with money, supplies and labour.
