It’s hard to disregard the headlines and pages in a newspaper covering the recent Haiti quake. Not only in the newspaper but in any form of media, the news is enormous even from the breakfast table to the coffee table. It has been five days since the devastation and I’ve read about many organizations and prominent individuals raising funds for the victims. It’s heroic of them. But despite of this stupendous awareness, Haiti is still in a desperate situation. It seems to me that all those help were not enough, or does any more help fail to reach the nation?
It’s quite ironic that in this time of need we read about some heads of an organization facing faud which only means that many are reluctant to support such groups. I am not rich and I don’t have much money to help support the different organizations but a little amount together with others will be a great contribution. But because of this untoward incidents of fraud and embezzlement, I’m one of those who are becoming reluctant to help. Though in fairness, I’m grateful that justice has been served for the people involved and I think more discovery of fraudulent will lead towards uprightness.
While browsing further the newspaper this morning, I came to a page about members of an organization called Doctors Without Borders who are leaving for Haiti. I have seen documentary films of this group and what they do in the field so I thought I should visit their website. My discovery tells me that this organization is worth the support. Their noble act of helping and saving lives is genuine. You may wish to learn more about Doctors Without Borders and make a beneficial decision to help Haiti through them.
If it takes a matter of time for help to reach, it’s a matter of life and death for the victims.
