IT Saving Lives: Delivering Efficiency and Connection Where It Matters!

I write to appeal for your contribution and support to the relief effort for the recent natural disasters in Asia, the Sichuan Earthquake and Myanmar Cyclone. IT can save lives! We seek your contribution not only in donation but also your expertise to help ongoing relief and rebuild efforts as an IT volunteer.

Relief.Asia is an online platform which was developed in the wake of the Myanmar Cyclone and Sichuan Earthquake Disaster that tore through the region in May, 2008. The website was deployed as a tool and platform to drive awareness and community contribution towards the rebuilding of nature-savaged regions such as Myanmar (also known as Burma) and Sichuan, through the application of Information Technology.
