Pakistan and India have been rocked by the worst earthquake in a century. In Pakistan, nearly 70,000 have been killed and an estimated 3 million rendered homeless, while in India there are nearly 1500 killed and several thousands more homeless. Help is urgently needed for medical supplies and food.

The Alliance for a Secular and Democratic South Asia, co-sponsors of the event, will be collecting funds for earthquake relief at the Indian Ocean event that will be sent directly to grassroots organizations working in teh affected areas. A small portion of proceeds from the concert will be donated, but that is hardly sufficient. So please come  to hear Indian Ocean and donate generously.

Funds will be sent through tax-exempt organizations in the US - the Eqbal Ahmed Fund and the SINGH Foundation, with zero overhead.

If you cannot come to the event please send in a contribution:
