A couple dozen members of the local Chilean community met yesterday in Berkeley to discuss some upcoming fundraising efforts and how to contact loved ones back in the earthquake-ravaged country. The damage and death toll in Chile (now at around 700) is nowhere near the devastating catastrophe that hit Haiti in January, and the Chilean government has been reluctant to accept too much international aid lest they siphon much away from Haiti, where it's still more needed. But nonetheless, with 500,000 homes damaged or destroyed, Chile is bound to need help with cleanup and recovery from the 8.8 quake.
