That's what is important, my wife is from Penang, Malaysia and we had some trying times trying to get in contact with my inlaws. Luckily, most of my inlaws were in NZ visiting my sister in law and her husband. The direct ability to help these people is what is going to make a difference, not the amount of money. It is almost like when East Timor exploded, Austrailia was able to react with goods and personnel, that is what is required.

You can add Norway to that list as well...
We've sent down medical personell, light field hospitals, C-130 Hercules etc..

I agree with you Lil Hulk, sending down "boots on the ground(air)" are much more valuable than money right now.

Hi,

You can Add India to it as well

India has Promised 23 Million Dollars To the neighbouring Counties.

And right now Indian Millitary is conducting it's largest rescue and Search Operation ever in the neighbouring Countries..................with more than 10,000 Troops Involved.


Money is one thing Right now we need people on the Groung ( Doctors/ techenicians etc ) ..............Aid is reaching to the people but it's very Slow...............The Logistics have to be sorted out Quickely and proper Distribution methd is needed right now.

Peace

Australians have been hailed the most generous people on earth after pledging more than $15 million for victims of the Boxing Day tsunami during a star-studded fundraising concert tonight.

The three commercial networks put traditional rivalries aside for the first time to simultaneously broadcast a concert and telethon to raise money for charity World Vision
while i highly doubt that we are "the most generous nation on earth" (in fact im rather annoyed they typed that, its bigheaded and downright stupid) it is rather impressive ammount. i heard there are heaps of companies who have pledged that they will match every dollar thier employees donate]
please note that the 15mil has nothing to do with the government, it is purely money donated by citizens during a telethon

My Niece is married to an Indonesian and they keep us updated as much as possible. They were forced to leave because of being Christian but still have ties. He sent an article about some parts of the Nation that will be rebuilt and by an odd twist of fate, will be better off than at any time in their history because of poverty and deaths by disease. Strange how at least a morsel of good can come from such devastation.

Italy is Europe's third contributor: we gave over 70 mill dollars, a couple of camp hospitals and our army, police and rescue teams are there, along with our CSI squads.

Most countries have medical teams, supplys and planes helping out there in diferent parts.
