India Helps!

In wake of the Mumbai Terror, there are so many who have helped, and those who would like to help but do not know how. For those, Kiran has started India Helps, an effort to help in anyway possible. The description below is straight copy and paste from the blog description.

What is IndiaHelps?

This blog is an effort to help. Help India, help ourselves to help ourselves. Because if we dont do it, no one will. Anyone with an urge to do more than just be a bystander to the carnage and mayhem that wrecks the parts of our country everytime we have a disaste r causes by external elements or through natural causes, can help.We will maintain a database of people who are in a position and are willing to be of assistance, either immediately during the crisis itself, or later in relief and rehabilitation.We will put people wanting to contribute financially to victims in direct contact with NGOs doing the same or the victims directly.We will look for good samaritans who are willing to contribute towards medical expenses, post traumatic therapy requirements, and prosthesis requirements for those rendered disabled in such situations.We will attempt to sponsor the education of the bereaved children by putting dedicated and serious citizens who wish to do so in direct contact with the bereaved family.We have many hopes. And need all the help we can. We're looking for those who can contribute skills at the times of crisis: Doctors, medically trained personnel, ex-army personnel, even anyone who has a vehicle and is willing to drive critically injured people to hospitals or ferry people from danger spots to safe zones. Anyone with a space that can be used a s a refuge area for people stuck in times of natural calamities like floods or total power blackouts, please do write in.Write in to indiahelps(at)gmail(dot)com if you would like to help in anyway, or have any suggestions.
