Disaster relief in Burma and China

Disaster Relief in Burma & China

Over the past week or so we have seen collossal natural disasters wreak havoc in Burma and China with the death of hundreds of thousands of people – children, adults and elderly people – just like us.

We feel many people will want to show solidarity and support for those of our fellow human beings who are experiencing such unimaginable levels of suffering by making donations. In addition to financial donations, blood donations are also needed for the earthquake victims in China.

To ensure your financial donations are channelled appropriately, we\’ve collated some links which we believe to be sound. Please maximise your donation by signing up for Giftaid, a Government scheme which enables charities to claim money from the Inland Revenue for donations made by UK taxpayers. For every GBP1 you give, your appointed charity receives GBP 1.28

Please let us know of any other links you would like us to add to this list.
