Need boats for rescue activities – next 24-48 hours

Posted by Jaya on August 29, 2008

We spoke to AID Volunteers on the ground and apart from the (dry) food/clothes/medicines they urgently need more boats to rescue people. With nearly 20 lacs people stranded, there just aren’t enough boats to rescue them all. An unusual requirement, but if you have any contacts through which you can help more boats reach there, please get in touch.
