THE chairman of the world's largest computer maker, Dell, has pledged $US3 million ($3.8 million) to help victims of the tsunami.

The donation, pledged to relief efforts for victims of the earthquake, was made through the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation - a charity organisation Mr Dell and his wife established in 1999.

The couple said the amount was an initial pledge meant to encourage others to donate generously to the tsunami victims.

"We encourage people in our country and everywhere to find it in their hearts to give generously to these people and the relief efforts," Michael Dell said.

According World Health Organization estimates, the tsunami has left in excess of five million people without water, shelter, food or health care.
