Action: Ask President, Congress to Boost Quake Aid

October 12, 2005

ACTION REQUESTED:

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 10/12/05) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today urged American Muslims and other people of conscience to call their elected representatives, including President Bush, to ask that the U.S. government provide more aid for areas traumatized by the South Asia earthquake.

The 7.6 magnitude earthquake devastated the region and may have claimed 40,000 lives. According to the United Nations, up to 2 million people have been made homeless by the earthquake. Thousands of refugees are living in flimsy shelters as temperatures are dropping.

The United States has provided eight military helicopters and made an initial contribution of $50 million.

ACTON REQUESTED:

Follow the link below and send messages to your elected officials asking them to make more aid available to victims of the earthquake.
