(This post is not related to the issue of recruiting but sometimes you just have to respond. I have been asked by a few people for some context that would help them understand the situation on the ground in Sichuan, on the basis that I am at least nearer. But I doubt my ability to even begin to describe what is happening.

Others have asked how they can help. This I can do (see list below). )

Sichuan Earthquake

Here on the well-off East Coast of China there is a disembodied sense of powerless in the face of nature’s power, and an outpouring of grief and financial support for the victims of the earthquake in Sichuan. We are inundated with images of the tragedy but we are far away and can never really understand the real consequences. The urge to contribute is strong.

There are online destinations where you can help but it can be difficult to find sites, and figure out how they will use the money. Most sites are about donating cash but some allow you to show moral support simply by clicking a banner, or entering missing people’s names, or giving blood, or sending an SMS which has part of its cost routed to a charity.

These links might provide you with some ideas, or some alignment with how you actually want to help. Some may need a proxy:
