The unimaginable

The vast numbers of men, sildenafil women and children already dead is difficult to imagine but many, many more will die from water-borne diseases and lack of shelter if aid is not dispatched immediately.

I was so lucky to have survived – the woman who had a souvenir shop underneath my hotel escaped with me. The wave took everything of hers away: her shop as well as her house, everything. Yet, she was still offering me whatever cash she had in her pocket to make sure that I get home safely. I mean, despite the fact that she had nothing, she still wanted to give everything that she had. So please, give generously because a lot of people have absolutely nothing other than what they are wearing.

Please, give what you can.
