南ルイジアナからさらなる緊急支援の呼びかけ

fdlogo2ハリケーン・カトリーナとその後のハリケーン・リタの大嵐によって壊滅的な被害を受けた南ルイジアナに暮らす5つの先住民コミュニティーを支援する「Four Directions Relief Project(四つの方角からの救済計画——コミュニティー・サポート・アクション)」のナオミ・アーチャーさんから緊急支援のお願いが、11月5日に届いています。あいかわらず政府の援助の手は先住民コミュニティーには届かずにいろいろな物資が不足しているようです。呼びかけの文の中ごろに必要なもののリストがあります。メッセージを世界に広く伝えるため——英文のまま転載しやすいよう——に、日本語にはしていません。関心のある人は読んでみてください。Four Directions Relief Project のトップページもアップデートされているので、そちらもご覧ください。地球で生きる心ある人たちのハートに届くことを祈っています。(北山耕平 記)

NOVEMBER 4th URGENT CALL FOR DONATIONS AND VOLUNTEERS*
*Hurricane Relief Needed in Native American Communities of Southern Louisiana*
*Visit www.intuitivepath.org/relief.html for more information.*

/November 4, 2005/ - The Native American tribes of the *Biloxi Chitimacha, Houma, and Pointe-au-Chien* of the southern Louisiana bayous continue to face a monumental struggle in channeling relief efforts to their tribal members devastated by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

For many communities, *grassroots donations and volunteers are the only consistent assistance*, and government aid is still not meeting the people's housing and rebuilding needs which will run into the millions of dollars.

*Immediate assistance is needed *in the form of skilled and unskilled volunteers, trades-people, contractors, builders, roofers, framers, landscapers, organizers, health and community-care workers, computer/communications techs, and others who can work in solidarity, mutual aid with these communities.

*Mobile kitchen resources are needed* to help feed large work camps - particularly during the upcoming holiday seasons and spring break 2006.

*The following donations are requested:*

  • Gift cards from Lowes or Home Depot to buy building materials and tools.
  • Mattresses, sheets, towels, pillows and blankets.
  • Appliances, space heaters, shelves, dressers and other basic home items.
  • Cribs, diapers, wipes, clothes and other baby items.
  • Healthy, easily prepared food is still needed in moderate quantities.
  • Monetary donations are always appreciated and assist with the day-to-day needs of volunteers and community members.

With great respect for the pride and good humor displayed by the bayou communities, assistance is still needed in this area. Decades of government neglect continue to leave these strong people vulnerable to natural disasters, and some community members are living in damaged and moldy buildings unrepaired from hurricanes years ago. *Elder care and cultural preservation are deep concerns.*

*Please act in solidarity with these Native American communities* as they work to rebuild their homes and way of life. Make whatever donations you can. Come to Louisiana and make a difference.
