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 CARE

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.


CARE works with poor communities in more than 70 countries around the world to find lasting solutions to poverty. We look at the big picture of poverty, and go beyond the symptoms to confront underlying causes. With a broad range of programs based on empowerment, equity and sustainability, CARE seeks to tap human potential and leverage the power of individuals and communities to unleash a vast force for progress.
