This photo with the words "7.0 HAITI CRUMBLES" seem to be splashed all over the various msm print and electronic media daily, yes ? What have we done about it ? We are definitely not going to wait for this government of ours to lift a finger and start any "Haiti Disaster Fund", yes ? The rest of the civilised world have mobilised aid in the form of water, medical supplies, food and most importantly humanitarian presence and rescue dogs there from day ONE .
(Go here to just see the heart breaking pictures and videos here - no words needed ! )
Ask yourself what you can or care to do....as we Malaysian are indeed a "caring" lot, are we not, right ? This earthquake is the worst natural disaster since the tsunami, ever to befall any nation where the death toll may run well over 200,000 and what has this government been doing ? Nothing much, I'd say. Guess you have to be of a certain privileged type of peoples before you get this government's attention and interest, I guess. We have been very helpful before at giving relief and aid to such "disasters" even if some were created by man himself, yes ? So why is the government so silent on this catastrophe ? We have rushed with food and supply aid to the fore-front to Bosnia, Palestine and Acheh, with so much enthusiasm before and that is so commendable, right ?
I will now starting the ball rolling here and would like to pledge RM50.00 . As ex-President Bush who is also heading the US humanitarian effort with Clinton said last night....cash is the only form of aide they need right now from around the world. Anyone with me ? Or maybe you can bank-in your donations into my account and I will forward it to the right body outside of Malaysia through the American Embassy here in Kuala Lumpur. That way it WILL reach the right people who are buying the right ( not expired or near expiry food ) foodstuff and supplies for the people of Haiti !
So does anyone cares ?
