Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
btw. this is also a timely reminder to give to the earth quake victims in Pakistan - they still need our support

here are some details from red cross crescent

on February the 2nd 2006 they write:

Outstanding needs: CHF 32,076,917; to date over CHF 119 million has been received, of which over CHF
66 million is in cash and over 53 million is in-kind contributions. More pledges are in the pipeline and will
be reflected in the next operations update; updates are now being issued on a weekly basis. Additional
support - particularly in cash - is still urgently needed.
Objective: the basic shelter and household needs of 81,000 earthquake-affected families (approximately
570,000 people) in northern Pakistan are met over the next six months, enabling them to start rebuilding
their future.
The operation has now reached the objective of providing basic shelter and household needs to 81,000 earthquakeaffected
families (approximately 570,000 people) in northern Pakistan. But it is clear that there is still a need for
further assistance during the immediate winter period and the Federation will continue to work in the affected

Of course this is only one agency, and if you have another one please give there.
