Sudan emergency

One of my work colleagues just sent us the following e-mail
I hate to upset anyone's lunch, but if you've seen the news reports about the situation in western Sudan, you've probably already had your day spoilt. The situation is absolutely appalling and on a massive scale - various sources are describing it as currently the biggest humanitarian disaster in the world. (See http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/3909649.stm ).

Anyway, I just want to encourage you, if you haven't already, to give lots of money to the disaster appeal. They really need it. A credit card* donation takes a minute at http://www.dec.org.uk/
It does look pretty bad. I've made a donation & just wanted to spread the appeal a bit wider. People should not be suffering like this in the 21st century.

*the site takes debit cards as well and you can also donate by taking money into a bank, or a charity shop of one of the affiliated charities.

On a positive note, I love the fact that the people I work with care about things like this
