    If anyone wishes to help, you can donate to any of the major aid agencies or alternatively, we are collecting donations which will be used for a specific cause at some stage in this ongoing crisis. Payment can be made by credit card (VISA or Mastercard) and our bank has kindly agreed to reduce the usual processing fee to a minimum, so more of your donation can be used to help those who are in such desperate need.

    We have created a web page at Disaster Relief Appeal with more details. Even very small donations are invaluable, since US$10 can feed an entire family for a week whilst they are getting back on their feet, rebuilding their houses etc.

    Thanking you in advance for any help you can give.

    The Borneo Exotics Disaster Relief Fund is a fantastic idea Rob! This can quickly get money to people living in the area who know the needs and where it can be used most effectively.

    Bob,

    Thank you for your generous donation, nearly the first one. Also thanks to the many other donors. Most of the donations have been larger than expected but even small amounts are very welcome.

    A friend has just got back from Tricomalee on the East Coast. On the day of the disaster, he hired a 4 wheel drive, grabbed a doctor, filled the vehicle with provisions and set off. What he reports is that there is now some duplication of effort which is something we shall avoid. How the money is used will be detailed on our web page at www.borneoexotics.com/aspx/disaster.aspx

    Thanks again everyone.

    I'm glad your okay, and that the nursury was undamaged, and i'm also glad that it didn't happen while i was in Bali this summer. It was horrible that this had to happen though. Kinda makes you think how many times you can dodge the bullet...
