Compassion Intl. is setting up a fund to partner with other evangelical relief agencies to aid tsunami victims. Compassion has pledged $375,000 in a major relief initiative to tsunami-stricken Aceh, Indonesia, identifying and caring for orphaned children and delivering food, clean water, medical care and counseling this week to specific families in crisis. Aceh’s death toll from the weekend quake and tsunami is estimated at more than 100,000 people, including an estimated five percent of the 300,000 in Aceh’s capital, Banda Aceh.
At least three Compassion projects were affected by the destruction. For more on what you can do, visit compassion.com
