The international response to the disaster has been quite extensive but at this time, 8 am GMT, there have, as of yet, not been any arrivals from the rest of the world. They are expected within the next few hours. Looking through the images on the net, being a photographer this is the first place I went to, I'm horrified by the degree of devastation. It's going to take a very long time for this country to get back to where it was before.

Can you imagine the joy in this father's heart, not everyone was that lucky.
What I'm going to do today is take a thousand Rand from my account and donate it to Unicef. Okay, that didn't work, Shelley tried to put it through by her credit card, not working, I tried to put it through by paypal, not working and today is a public, banks closed, so I'll have to do it tomorrow.
Here's a link to Unicef's donation page for those who really do care about their fellow inhabitants of our wonderful God given Earth. http://www.supportunicef.org/site/c.dvKUI9OWInJ6H/b.7549291/k.BDF0/Home.htm
I'm going to have to leave this post now. Every time I go back to images of the quake there are more pictures, horrifying.
