Tomorrow (March 18th) I am partaking in a Bloggers Day of Silence in memory of the victims of the Japanese tsunami.
We have all seen the horrific and unbelievable images that have filled our newspapers and television screens in the wake of last Friday’s earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The human cost of this disaster has yet to be tolled as thousands remain missing almost a week on. For those who have survived, life is a lonely thing and the clean-up task at hand is huge. Infrastructure has been ruined; the day-to-day conveniences we all take for granted are in scarce supply. Shelter is just one of these things. This day of silence’s chosen charity is Shelterbox.
ShelterBox provide emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most. Each large, green ShelterBox is tailored to a disaster but typically has a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other vital items.
I’m putting down the keyboard now…
