I have received this comment from a visitor to my siteIn Singapore there are people who want to donate and cortribute in kind to India but have no means to make sure that the aid actually reaches the victims. The Indian High Commission, Air India and Indian Airlines have refused to take donations in the form of clothes, food or other kind. The Indian High Commission has stated that it is only interested in cash contributions and the two airlines have refused to carry donations on their multiple daily flights to Chennai from SIngapore.The attitude of the Indian Hicom and the 2 airlines is regrettable in a time like this when establishments like Sri Lankan Airlines and the Sri Lankan embassy have been so pro-active in coming to the aid of its people.It is indeed a sad day that when these organisations refuse to help their own people when foreigners are trying to send aid to those very people in a time of need.
So I am wondering if there a list of organizations which accepts donations in kind, so that people can donate in kind too. In current situaton, kind donatoins are also very very important as millions of people are left without food, clothing, shelter, etcc. and are pron to diseases.
