17-24 NOV Indonesia Disaster Relief Toys Drive

*Indonesia Disaster Relief Toys Drive*

Bencana alam yang menimpa masyarakat Indonesia di tiga tempat di bulan Oktober lalu amat menyedihkan kita. Korban jiwa banyak berjatuhan dan kerusakan harta-benda tidak ternilai. Korban yang masih hidup menjalani kehidupan di pengungsian maupun dalam situasi prihatin paska bencana.
Sebagian dari yang masih hidup tsb adalah anak-anak; sebagian dari mereka sekarang mungkin menjadi yatim piatu.

Indonesia Relief-USA dan Indonesian American Association mengajak Bapak/Ibu/Sdr/Sdri sekalian untuk menyumbang mainan anak-anak (baik baru maupun bekas) yang akan disumbangkan kepada anak-anak korban bencana alam di tiga tempat tsb. Untuk mainan bekas, mohon memberikan mainan dengan kondisi yang *masih bagus* dan (kalau elektronik) *masih berfungsi*.

Mengingat pengiriman mainan ke Indonesia ini akan memakan waktu (diharapkan tiba di lokasi bencana dan disebarkan sebelum Christmas), pengumpulan mainan ini hanya akan berlangsung selama satu minggu, mulai hari *Rabu (Nov 17, 2010)* sampai *Rabu sore (Nov 24, 2010)*. Kami menyediakan drop boxes di dua tempat, yaitu KBRI dan Wisma Indonesia, Tilden.

KBRI
2020 Massachusetts Ave. N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20036
Tel: 202-775-5200

Wisma Indonesia
2700 Tilden Street, N.W..
Washington, D.C. 20008

Toys drive ini adalah usaha bersama seluruh komponen masyarakat Indonesia di Washington DC area dan KBRI. Sumbangan ini akan diatasnamakan *"Dari Masyarakat Indonesia di Washington DC Area"*. Mari kita support usaha ini, dan mohon informasi ini disebarkan kepada kelompok-kelompok masyarakat yang ada.

Untuk pertanyaan, silakan menghubungi:
- Rachmad Poetranto (202-427-9700)
- Wanti Syarief Rachmat (202-258-6172)
- Irwan Rosyadi (202-468-2635)

Terimakasih.

*Indonesia Disaster Relief Toys Drive*

Natural disasters struck Indonesia in three places last October. We are very saddened. Many casualties occured and property damage were invaluable. The survivors are living in refugee camps, or they live in a post-disaster condition. Many of the survivors are children. Some of them may now be orphans.

Indonesia Relief-USA and the Indonesian American Association invite you to donate children's toys (new or used), which will be donated to the children victims of natural disasters in those three places. For used toys, please provide toy that is still in good condition and (if electronic) it is still functioning.

Given the shipment to Indonesia will take time (expected to arrive at the disaster site and distributed before Christmas), this toys drive will only last for one week, starting today (Wednesday, November 17, 2010) until Wednesday afternoon (November 24, 2010). We provide drop boxes in two places: the Embassy of Indonesia and Wisma Indonesia at the following addresses:

Embassy of Indonesia
2020 Massachusetts Ave. N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20036
Tel: 202-775-5200

Wisma Indonesia
2700 Tilden Street, N.W..
Washington, D.C. 20008

This toys drive is a joint effort from all Indonesian community members in the Washington DC area and the Embassy of Indonesia. This donation will be labeled as "From Indonesian Community in Washington DC Area". Let us support this effort, and please disseminate this information to all groups in the community.

For questions, please contact:
- Rachmad Poetranto (202-427-9700)
- Wanti Syarief Rachmat (202-258-6172)
- Irwan Rosyadi (202-468-2635)

Thank you.
