[By Shideh]   A great organization working toward global earthquake safety: http://www.geohaz.org/index.htm

The mission of this Nonprofit Organization is to “reduce death and suffering – particularly among children – due to earthquake and other natural hazards in the world’s most vulnerable communities through advocacy, preparedness, prevention, and mitigation.”  I will write more about this organization in the future posts as we just learned about their activities and are planning to do more research and potentially get involved; so more posts to come.
