I would like to know about organisations that are providing relief to tsumani victims with their exclusive focus on the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. I ask because the Islands are economically much weaker than the other places in India where the waves caused havoc, and require the extra help. If anybody knows of such organisations, could you please let me know their names, addresses and contact numbers at groupdynamix@sify.com
