It has been a little over one month since countries in South East Asia were ravaged by a Tsunami. People are still reeling from the massive toll on humanity and the destruction that will take many years and billions of dollars to repair. As students we believe that its our responsibility to do all that we can to help aid the rebuilding efforts. We have put together a huge benefit show to raise funds to donate to the IFRCS (International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies)

We must love and support one another during this time. We must set aside nationality and ethnicity so that we can simply see one another as human beings. We want to do all that we can to help raise awareness along with funds, to aid those in need.

On 26 December 2004, an earthquake measuring 9.0 on the Richter scale struck the area off the western coast of northern Sumatra, triggering massive tidal waves, or tsunamis, that inundated coastal areas in countries all around the Indian Ocean rim from Indonesia to Somalia. At least 185,000 people have died in the disaster, with over 525,000 injured, 1,600,000 displaced and over 1,300,000 homeless. The catastrophe now ranks as the third-worst natural disaster in the past 100 years. It is the deadliest tsunami ever.

It will take another four weeks to recover all the bodies, Yet the biggest problem facing disaster zones is not the dead, but the living. Tens of thousands of survivors remain stranded in Aceh as a massive multinational aid effort battles to get food, medicine and shelter to cut-off communities. Temporary camps in the province teem with hundreds of thousands of displaced people who have no homes, jobs or family to return to.

In Sri Lanka -- the second worst-hit country with about 31,000 killed --more than 400,000 people are still being sheltered in public buildings, temples and churches along the island's coast, with plans to move them into tent villages. Weary and traumatized, they bear psychological as well as physical scars. Warnings from the UN and World Health Organization that disease outbreaks could double the disaster toll have so far proved unfounded.


The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRCS) is an international humanitarian organization, it was founded in Paris in May 1919, after World War I, to assist with co-operation between the different national humanitarian organizations. It is the world's largest humanitarian organization, with 173 chapters worldwide.
They are active in disaster relief, blood collection, refugee locating, and civilian medical training. The IFRCS' purpose is ... "to organize, coordinate, and direct international relief actions; to promote humanitarian activities; to represent and encourage the development of National Societies; to bring help to victims of armed conflicts, refugees, and displaced people; to reduce the vulnerability of people through development programs."
