The Asian Tsunami: the World's Worst Disaster (26 Dec 2004)

The Tsunami appeal is the fastest and largest disaster fundraiser in history


The massive tsunami in the Indian Ocean has been described by relief experts as one of the worst natural disasters in the history of mankind. But the appeal has also proved to be the fastest fund raiser in history. Thank You!

The British, haunted by images of disaster from the Asian tsunami, have donated up to one million pounds an hour in the country’s fastest ever charity appeal. Similar responses have also come from the citizens of other countries around the world.

The British Government's donation, raised from an initial 15 million to 50 million pounds (1 Jan 2005) has been dwarfed by the 60 million pounds (upgraded to 76 million pounds on 4 Jan 2005 and again to 100 million on 6 Jan) collected from the general public, from phone donations, online donations, street and shop collections.

Even the tabloids have been racing with each other to see who can raise most from their readers. So far (5 Jan 2005) nearly two billion pounds (over 2 billion by the 6 Jan) has been pledged by governments and international agencies around the world, to help ease the suffering in Asia.

As I write this, aid is racing to the worst affected areas, with plane loads of cargo touching down in all airports around the Bay of Bengal, bringing, vehicles, shelter, food, clean water, clothes, and all important medicines and surgical supplies.

A spokesman for the national fundraisers DEC, said: "This is the fastest appeal in the history of the Disasters Emergency Committee and at its height, donations were coming in at just under one million pounds an hour."

Thousands of people are still missing following the Asia earthquake that has seen the death toll rise from a few hundred in the initial news reports of Boxing Day, to over 283,000, and rising, a fortnight later.

Around 5 million are now homeless, destitute, hungry, injured, grieving and in pain. The UN puts the overall number of people in need of food aid at 1.8m and urges more protection for thousands of orphans. The UN also says the number of dead will likely exceed 283,000 and the final figure may never be known, as many bodies have been washed out to sea.

The latest figures (3 Jan) show the number of casualties, but many hundreds of thousands are right now in desperate need.

1. Indonesia: 80,246   2. Sri Lanka: 28,729   3. India (inc Andaman and Nicobar Is): 9,451   4. Thailand: 4,993   5. Somalia: 142   6. Burma: 53   7. Maldives: 74   8. Malaysia: 67   9. Tanzania: 10   10. Seychelles: 1   11. Bangladesh: 2   12. Kenya: 1

How Can I help?
Visit one of these sites, or pick up the phone and pledge whatever you can afford. The following aid organisations have launched urgent appeals for donations to help survivors of Sunday's Indian Ocean earthquake disaster. More than 120,000 people are confirmed killed by the waves and millions more are homeless.

Many governments and organisations - including the US, Canada, Australia, the EU and the UN - are sending aid. The UN has warned that supplies are urgently needed to support the survivors and to try and prevent disease which, it says, could double the death toll.

The Disasters Emergency Committee - www.dec.org.uk - is an umbrella group of UK aid organisations - including Action Aid, British Red Cross and Oxfam - working to provide clean water, food and shelter to thousands. To call from the UK, dial 0207 387 0200.
