After this enormous disaster our help may seem like a drop in the bucket,
we can all contribute, our help does make a difference.
We can't do anything to give people their families back, but we can help people
giving their homes back. Winter is approaching very fast, thousands and
thousands of people are homeless, so they desperately need all of our help to
give them back their houses, schools, hospitals...
