Earthquake in Yogyakarta,Indonesia

Dear friends,

I am sure that you have already heard a lot about the earthquake in Yogyakarta and do try to find out ways to help the victims of the disaster.
As you know well, Dr. John Lee of Singapore, Chair of the Medical Mission Committee of our Asian Federation of Catholic Medical Associations is working very hard to coordinate all the activities supporting the victims on behalf of the AFCMA as he did during theTsunami disaster in Aceh last year.
Using this opportunity, I would like to thank you all once again for having joined our medical mission project for the Tsunami victims.

I know that you have already started out your efforts to help the victims in Yogyakarta including prayers, and I thank you in advance for all those good works.

For your information, the Korean Federation of Catholic Medical Associations is now organizing a project to help the Yogyakarta victims together with the International Coorperation Division of the Archdiocese of Seoul. This will include sending charity funds and a medical team.

I hope that you will also aid in the effort to help the victims of the Indonesian earthquake.
Above all, let us pray that our Lord will help our Indonesian brothers and sisters to recover quickly from the tragic disaster.

Regards in Christ,

Kwang-ho Meng
President, AFCMA
