Dear Friends, It was with heavy hearts that we saw the images of the destruction of Padang on our televisions just a few days ago, but already those scenes have faded as other news takes precedence. For the people of Padang, the earthquakes that hit on the afternoon of the 30 Sept and the morning of the 1st October are still all too real. The death toll is now over 1,000 and expected to climb. Many homes, businesses, schools, shops and hospitals are destroyed and the community struggles to maintain a sense of normality amidst the chaos.
