How to Help

Published January 10, 2005

| NONE

To help aid victims of the Dec. 26 tsunami, a number of organizations are accepting contributions and donations through Web sites.

The official U.S. response is being managed through USA Freedom Corps. Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton are urging Americans to contribute through www.usafreedomcorps.gov.

This list is provided by USAID and can be retrieved from their website. Additions to the list will be posted there.

The Network for Good Web site also has compiled a list of groups involved in the aid effort. Click here to view the list.

The following aid organizations are members of InterAction, a coalition of more than 160 U.S.-based private relief, international development and refugee assistance organizations that have agreed to abide by a set of standards to ensure accountability to donors, professional competence and quality of service.

An updated list of agencies responding, as well as detailed information on their activities, is available at www.interaction.org/sasia/index.html. InterAction can be reached at 202-667-8227.
