I wanted to thank you for posting this information... our school is intent on supporting a school in the affected areas, and this information has helped greatly. However, should you find more information regarding schools that have been affected, please do not hesitate to send them to xanadu[at]gmail[dot]com.

This is regarding school reconstruction: What are the needs for schoolbooks, libraries, other school supplies like visual aids (maps, charts, videos, etc), and library needs?
