Dear GKD Members, Our hearts go out to the millions of people affected by the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit South Asia and Southeast Asia on Sunday. We hope that our members in all of the affected countries are safe, along with their families. If any GKD members have information on the use of ICT for disaster relief that they would like to share, we will forward the information to relief organizations.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who have been struck by this terrible disaster.
