Thousands of lives have been lost, whole communities swept aside in a matter of minutes. Boats, cars and houses flung aside like toys.
It brings home to us all that our safe, secure day-to-day life can change in a moment. Everything we work for, stress and worry over gets put into perspective at moments like this.
Do something today to help make some small difference to those in greatest need.
