I arrived home from Haiti on Saturday night – it has been a remarkable and, hopefully, helpful and useful time of response to the January 12th earthquake in that devastated country. The new focus for us, given our connection with the Tibetan Plateau, is the earthquake in Yushu Prefecture in southern Qinghai province where Plateau Perspectives has been working for over ten years. (Dr) Marion has been organizing and directing the medical teams going to Jiegu (or Yushu town) and Marc (based in Xining) has become a spokesperson for international media coverage. For example, you might like to read the Time mag. article at: http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,1982170,00.html. Plateau Perspectives has put up a special website: http://yushuearthquakerelief.com/.You can view footage there (under April 16) of the devastated area (97 % of Jiegu has been flattened). If you are interested in helping victims of the Yushu earthquake, you can give on line via Plateau Perspectives at the following website: http://www.canadahelps.org/CharityProfilePage.aspx?CharityID=s80660 .
