There is a more comprehensive list here. We are updating real-time information as they come in so that they don’t get lost among other calls for aid. If you can help put some of what’s listed in this post at the Google docs, please do so that all of our relief information sources are well consolidated.

    1. No info about that yet but will follow up. Thanks!

  3. As of last night, the slots for World Vision volunteers for repacking was already full. I haven’t checked since then but I’m sure that other orgs need more people than they do.
