Help the children of the tsunami

The events of Boxing Day morning in Asia brought a disaster of unimaginable proportions which has directly touched the lives of countless people in Asia and around the world.

Many children have been affected, with many of the survivors now orphaned. It is support in the short, medium and long term on behalf of this vulnerable group for which we would like to ask for your support.
