Today is International Blogging for Disaster Relief day..
It's a month before Ramadan starts and that means it's around the time people think about giving to those in need ..and since it was the anniversary of horrors like Beslan this week, and it was also a terrible week for Iraq (more terrible than usual that is) and also is a time of suffering for those in the Southern US..I will just put down a couple of links that might be helpful..
As I mentioned in my previous posts on Katrina the most dependable place to donate money for that disaster is The American Red Cross...There is also the Salvation Army...Save the Children has a children's fund...and if you want advice and info there is FEMA
To help in Iraq where the recent tragedy is just the latest in their years of suffering you can go to:
CARE: They closed down operations in Iraq in 2004 so that Margaret Hassan would be released by her hostage takers..she was murdered.
To help the victims of Beslan:
Many areas in Africa need our help:
Southern Africa Food Shortages:
The Tsunami hit areas still need our help:
Doctors Without Borders is a good place to help out because they provide medical assistance to places where some other charities will not go.
In Kuwait there is the charity Shop Artisana which is in Zahra Center...You can find out what their next charity event is if you pass by there..
Also there is the Kuwait Society for the Handicapped
and there is KACCH ,for children in hospitals.
