A Terrible Earthquake
But now the reports coming in from Pakistan look horrible. They are estimating over 3000 dead, but of course there will be many more injured. Gateway Pundit seems to be tracking all the coverage, and given the remoteness of the area, it's likely that more casualties will continue to be reported. In Mansehra there are estimates that 250 children were killed in one school and 50 in another. There are also deaths in India and Afghanistan, apparently.
Does anyone know which relief organization is best for this area? After the reports of what the UN did and did not do for the tsunami, I feel like donating to another organization would be better.
They are still having severe aftershocks (USGS).
Yes, I am not wanting money to end up in plush offices. Even in the states I have found that the plusher the offices the less actually happens on the ground.
