“An earthquake came in the middle of the night. The next morning, my son arrived,” Aminah whispered as baby-boy Julia Pratama slept cozily in her arms. Since little Julia was born one month ago, people on the island of #Lombok , #Indonesia have endured a series of devastating #earthquakes and chronic aftershocks. “In a scary time, he is our gift.” The Indonesian Red Cross (@palangmerah_indonesia) is helping to provide shelter materials, comfort, and clean #water —in addition to rice and #diapers —across the island. We are proud to be part of this aid effort. #redcross#redcrescent#humanitarian 📸: Sydney Morton/American Red Cross
A HUGE thank you to ALL the compassionate ARC volunteers! Animal Rescue Corps has now called on our volunteers to care for the animals from Operation Noah’s Ark for almost 5 months now. Our incredible volunteers are staffing two shifts a day, seven days a week, at the ARC emergency shelter to make sure these animals get abundant care and attention. We are so grateful that you take time from your families, vacations and other priorities to give to these animals. This work is not possible without your selfless gift. Thank you!
For anyone wishing to volunteer with ARC on this operation or in the future, please send an email with your contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information.
Sam’s favorite thing so far about first grade is riding the bus. “St. Jude had such a positive, upbeat environment,” Sam’s mom says. “We were truly grateful for that during our journey.” Two years after finishing treatment, Sam’s scans continue to show no evidence of disease.
Without basic #literacy skills everyday tasks are harder – whether it be reading a bus timetable, applying for a loan or job, or reading to your child. 📚 The Literacy Rotarian Action Group (LitRAG) will award two Rotary clubs that best take action to address literacy in their community with US$500 each! Get inspired and learn more at the link in bio and be sure to enter by 15 October.
