Islamic Relief Initiates Urgent Appeal for Victims of Hurricane Katrina Disaster

Responding to the worst storm in the southern United States in thirty years, Islamic Relief has initiated an appeal to help the victims of the floods caused by Hurricane Katrina.

Katrina has thus far destroyed everything in its path, slamming into the Gulf Coast just outside New Orleans, Louisiana, on Monday, submerging entire neighborhoods up to their roofs, and blowing out windows in hospitals, hotels and high-rises. Three states in all are affected by this disaster.

Islamic Relief is assessing the needs on the ground, and is committed to aiding the victims of this tragedy.

Please act now, as the need is immediate and urgent.

Caution about donations 31.Aug.2005 04:18

Be CAIRful where you send your money. During disasters such as this some folks take advantage of good hearts who wish to help. Most of the money ends up in the wrong pockets and purchases things the donor wouldn't want to knowingly buy.

I also recommend a disaster relief organization that I personally have volunteered my time. They are the Scientology Volunteer Ministers. To give you a bit of information on who they are, they are a worldwide grass-roots movement that is open to anyone who recognizes the world needs to change and who wants to make a difference. In over the past two decades, the Volunteer Ministers have become a major disaster response force. Since 9/11 2001 New York, their numbers have doubled, redoubled and doubled again. They have provided nearly 3,000,000 hours of real help to over 1,500,000 people in the last year alone.
