Anglican diocese gives 100k for tsunami victims -07/01/05

The Diocese of York has announced it is making one hundred thousand pounds (£100,000) from central diocesan funds available to the stricken areas of south east Asia devastated by the 26 December tsunami tidal wave. Church members, says the diocese, are active among both victims and aid workers, and are often able to use local knowledge and contacts to bring practical help to suffering communities during the inevitable time lags in mobilising national and international initiatives.
