Readers to help victims.

Examiner readers were today urged to dig deep to help the victims of the Asian tidal wave horror.

The newspaper has teamed up with the Unicef charity to try to raise vital cash for food, medical supplies and emergency shelters for the thousands left homeless by the quake and tidal waves.

Unicef is already helping in the disaster-hit area.

Louis Coles, regional fundraising manager for Unicef Yorkshire, said: "It is fantastic that Examiner readers have the opportunity to help all those tragically affected by the Asian earthquake.

"Everyone at Unicef is delighted we have joined forces.

"A disaster on this scale is unprecedented. Without support like this, the death toll will only rise.

"For just 10p, Unicef can give a thirsty child a litre of clean, safe water to drink."

Mr Coles added: "I urge every Examiner readers to send whatever they can to support Unicef's life-saving work."
