Hong Kong community’s concern and generosity for victims of South and East Asia 
tidal waves catastrophe is enormous.

The Hong Kong Red Cross (HKRC) has received HK$26 million donation from the 
Hong Kong community for its relief operations to help victims hard hit by the 
disaster..  The donation includes USD1 million from the Hongkong Bank 
Foundation, HK$3 million from Po Lin Monastery, USD250,000 from the Jockey 
Club’s operation fund and HK$1million from the Glorious Sun Group, HK$500,000 
from Hang Seng Bank Limited.

But HKRC is appealing for more donations so as to help victims of this largest 
catastrophe in decades. “There are at least 13 international Red Cross 
emergency response teams currently working in Sri Lanka and Indonesia to assist 
with water and sanitation, basic health, aid distribution, telecommunications 
and logistics. Besides searching for survivors and providing aid to victims, 
the Red Cross volunteers help collect bodies of the deceased to secure hygiene 
of the environment,” said Mr. K M Chan, Secretary General of HKRC.

Sri Lanka is the one the hardest-hit countries in the region.  More than 40,000 
people are temporarily housed in 66 Red Cross camps and shelters, and 14,000 
are staying with relatives and friends. In Indonesia, more than 300 volunteers

Oxfam Hong Kong Readies HK$5 Million Responding To Immediate Needs
Following The Asian Tsunami December 29, 2004Oxfam Hong Kong has made a grant 
of HK$5 million for emergency relief and rehabilitation work in Sri Lanka, 
Indonesia and India, the worst hit countries in the region.  Oxfam, in 
collaboration with UN OCHA is rushing to the aid of tens of thousands affected 
by the flooding in the region. In Indonesia,

Oxfam is preparing for provision of water and sanitation, including buckets 
with tap, mosquito nets, water tanks, latrine plates and chlorine, and putting 
together plastic sheeting for temporary shelter to 10,000 households in Aceh 
and North Sumatra provinces. Ache is one of the poorest provinces in Indonesia. 
The tidal waves caused serious damage to public facilities, transportation 
(roads and bridges), telecommunications, electricity, water and power supplies. 
 In Sri Lanka , Oxfam has already been distributing food, water, tents, mats and

plastic sheeting, targeting 10,000 households in Trincomalee and other regions. 
Oxfam is assessing situation in Batticaloa where it is believed to have been 
serious hit by the disaster.  A relief flight carrying 27 tonnes of emergency 
equipment will leave the UK on the morning of 29 th for Sri Lanka and 
Indonesia. Oxfam is working with local authorities to ensure that the equipment 
can be sent to the affected areas without delay.  Oxfam flood-response experts 
are already on their way to the worst affected regions of Tamil Nadu and Andhra 
Pradesh states in India and urgently needed assistance is being prepared.  As a 
wide range of area is affected by the tsunami, one of the greatest challenges 
for relief work is getting aid to where it is needed most due to, among other 
factors, destruction of infrastructure

Oxfam is in contact with the local governments, non-governmental organizations 
and international assistance efforts for the quickest and most efficient aid 
effort.  Oxfam appeals to the public for donations for relief and 
rehabilitation work in the affected areas

3120 00285 or 909018 588 NEW YORK,  28 December 2004 – Children are likely to 
account for more than a third of those killed when massive waves smashed into 
coastal communities across Asia, UNICEF Executive Director Carol Bellamy said 

Virtually no country has a population with less than a third of its population 
aged eighteen years or below and in some of the countries up to 50 per cent of 
the population is young,” she told reporters at the United Nations. According 
to UNICEF, children account for a large proportion of casualties because they 
represent 39 per cent of the overall population in the eight hardest-hit 
countries. Eyewitness accounts indicate that many children died because they 
weren’t strong enough to hold on to fixtures or trees when huge tidal waves 
swept them off their feet.  “Kids can run but they were least able to withstand 
the flooding or hold on. So that is one of the reasons children have been 
particularly affected

Carol Bellamy said. Latest estimates suggest the huge undersea earthquake off 
the coast of Indonesia and the tsunami it triggered on Sunday killed more than 
50,000 people and left millions homeless in countries around the Indian Ocean. 
Sri Lanka, Indonesia, India and Thailand were among the worst hit by the 
undersea earthquake which measured 9.0 on the Richter scale and triggered huge 
waves from Malaysia to Africa. As millions of people in coastal communities 
around the rim of the Indian Ocean struggle to survive the aftermath of the 

 the United Nations is coordinating one of the world’s largest ever relief 
operations. A UNICEF-chartered plane packed with medical supplies, shelter 
materials and education kits left Denmark this evening. These first supplies, 
destined for Sri Lanka, include enough emergency health supplies for 150,000 
people for three months, 150,000 sachets of oral rehydration salts to combat 
diarrhoea and 20 tents. School-in-a-box kits (containing education materials 
for 8,000 pupils and their teachers) and recreation kits are also included in 
the shipment

 ensuring that children can resume their education as quickly as possible and 
regain a sense of normality. “We are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, 
to start packing and shipping essential supplies for an emergency in the 
initial critical hours. Ten additional staff worked late into the evening 
yesterday, packing the items ready for despatch today,” said Soren Hansen, 
UNICEF’s head of warehouse and logistics operations in Copenhagen

A second flight bound for Sri Lanka, sponsored by the Belgian Government and 
containing 20 tonnes of tarpaulins and tents, was scheduled to leave Dubai 
tonight.  “The earthquake and tsunamis could not have been predicted, but 
thanks to UNICEF’s network of emergency warehouse hubs around the world, 
including Dubai, we are prepared for just such a crisis,” Soren Hansen added.  
More emergency health kits are expected to leave Copenhagen tomorrow 
(Wednesday), on their way to Indonesia.

 UNICEF’s commitment is to be able to respond to an emergency within 48 hours.  
UNICEF has long-established offices in every affected country staffed by 
experts who live and work there throughout the year.   In Thailand, UNICEF is 
assessing both immediate and long-term needs in the affected areas, which in 
addition to the tourist spots Phuket and Krabi also include fishing communities 
along other areas of the coast which were completely destroyed by the tidal 
surge.  UNICEF is focusing on providing water, sanitation facilities and food 
for those in the affected areas, especially children, as well as addressing the 
longer-term needs for education, psychological support and replacing lost 
livelihood of entire communities. In Sri Lanka,

UNICEF has already responded to a government request for shelter supplies, 
providing more than 30,000 blankets and sleeping mats as well as T-shirts and 
other articles of clothing from local emergency stocks.  In India, UNICEF has 
delivered an initial 50 water tanks to the southern state of Tamil Nadu, where 
the government has set up 200 relief sites in seven affected districts. UNICEF 
expects to provide the region with hundreds of thousands of water purification 
tablets, a total of 1,600 community water tanks, 200,000 sachets of oral 
rehydration salts, medical supplies sufficient to serve 30 health centres, and 
30,000 blankets. Serious concerns remain for children in the Indian islands of 
Andaman and Nicobar where death tolls of up to 7,000 have been reported.  In 

UNICEF staff are part of a larger UN assessment team that has headed into 
worst-hit Aceh province to identify urgent needs. Some 500,000 people in the 
province have been directly affected, particularly in the provincial capital of 
Banda Aceh, where houses have been destroyed and water, power and 
telecommunications disrupted. All but two of Banda Aceh’s ambulances were 
destroyed. In Somalia, where hundreds of families have been left without 
shelter, food and clean drinking water, a UNICEF team assessing the affected 
areas with local authorities is delivering immediate assistance of oral 
rehydration salts, chlorine powder and essential drugs while arranging for 
increased supplies as needed.

In addition to providing clean water and sanitation facilities, UNICEF will 
focus on emergency health care, nutritional needs, family relief kits and 
temporary shelters for the affected families. In the Maldives, which were hard 
hit by the tsunamis, UNICEF and UN sister agencies are working with the 
government to coordinate an international relief effort that will include the 
immediate provision of water purification supplies, food, clothing for 
children, shelter supplies, and other basics.   In Bangladesh, and Myanmar 
UNICEF is supporting government-led efforts to meet localized needs. The impact 
of the disaster was not as widespread in these countries, although a more 
complete picture is still emerging.  Remenber to fax your payment copy slip to
