and sorrow at the loss and disruption of life and the property damage
caused by hurricane Katrina in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.
This is truly "one of the worst natural disaster in our nation's

Sewa volunteers in Texas and Louisiana have begun working with
American Red Cross and other organizations to provide immediate
relief. Sewa International is also identifying the long-term needs of
the people and will be working with governments of Louisiana and

Sewa International urges individuals, companies and organizations to
donate in order to provide assistance to those who have suffered from

Orleans shortly to meet with local authorities to identify the
specific projects to be undertaken.
