The volunteers have offered to make/take calls to aid agencies from anyone concerned/ interested via the conference room. Information is also sought on GPS coordinates for mapping and relaying of aid requests and offers of assistance. To join the conference, please send an email containing your Yahoo ID to messenger (at) javaquake.worldwidehelp.info. IM room is based and run from Milan, London, New Jersey and Trindad.
