If You Are In India, Here's One Simple Way to Help Kashmir Quake Victims

This from an e-mail i received today from yogi sikand from

If you live anywhere in India here is one way that you can help, in your own small way, the suffering victims of the recent earthquake in Kashmir:

You can collect or buy warm clothes, blankets, sleeping bags, sheets etc [in good condition please] from friends and relatives and then arrange to send them by truck/road transport to Kashmir [which will be cheaper, although less fast, than courier]. Please note that all this material should be in GOOD condition, and not torn or unusable. Please do NOT send dirty, torn or very old and fraying material.

Think of the thousands of people suffering in Kashmir with severe winter now approaching.

You could send them to my friend Arjimand Hussain, who heads Action Aid in Kashmir, who will arrange to distribute them in affected villages in Kupwara and Baramulla. The parcel [s] should be addressed to:
