Dear All,


December 26, 2004 while we were celebrating Christmas , our country was hit by an disastrous Earthquake
followed by Tsunami, as widely publicized on all the media and summarized on the following page

Indonesia Earth Quake & Tsunami Disaster

I am the director of an NGO, a non-profit organization concerned with the
well-being of the elderly especially the poor elderly. We have received many
calls for assistance, but we have limited resources.|
Anyone who would like to help alleviate the sorrow and hardship o
f the elderly in Aceh, can send a contribution to :


Yayasan Emong Lansia
Bank: Central Asia (BCA), cabang WismaGKBI
Jl. Jenderal Sudirman, Jakarta Selatan - Indonesia.
Account number : 006-300-9668.


We will send you a report of all donations received and a report of use of funds.
We are working together with the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI) and the Ministry of Social Affairs.

From our sponsors in Jakarta, we have asked for donations in kind, such as blankets, clothes , food, etc.
For our friends and relatives and International partners, the best way is to give a cash donation through
our Bank Account. Be assured that all funds received will be properly used and accounted for.

What better way to start he New Year then by supporting those in need?

Happy New Year. God bless you all.

Warm wishes,

Eva Sabdono
