Tsunami Tsupport


In the wake of what could be arguably called the worlds greatest act of God in the new millenium, we have also been witness to what could be equally argued as the worlds greatest act of charity as the United Nations have received over 4 Billion dollars of aid meant for Southeast Asia. With so much funds to counter in even greater positive need , one thing we must learn from this is what to do next instant. The tragedy continues to escalate, and what can be more tragic now, with aid so close away, it cant even get to most of the all the people that absolutely need it.

Canada must be commended for its deployment of the DART team. DART (Disaster Assistance Response Team) is comprised of 43 person medical team, and has a water purification equipment. While they are not equiped to handle major trauma or surgical needs, they can treat secondary ailments relating to unsanitary conditions.

However, the DART team, like most of the assistance sent by the worlds nations, cannot even reach to the many people since the roads are still blocked. The idea behind the DART team is what is important. There is no reason why other countries work together and create other DART teams, that might both enhance the one Canada has, or focus on other potential problem areas. Measures must be taken that are common for most disasters. Getting a secure location, creating a road to reach the affected areas for both containment, and pulling out survivors, treating the wounded, and feeding the everybody. It has been over 2 weeks since the incident, and still people have no help. Groups impersonating relief organisations seemed to have profited the most, and they have made an unestimated amount of money from unsuspecting samaritans.

What might you do? Simple. If you havent donated yet, and are afraid of grasping scammed, go directly to the relief organisation. Do not give money to many people that call you, or that you see in the street. To find a more extensive list, check http://www.google.com/tsunami_relief.html
But that along is not enough. If the United Nations cannot properly manage the assistance, write to your government and have them follow Canadas lead. Get them to work on another DART type team or script. What happened in Southeast Asia may happen to you, either around your home, or while you are on vacation. Do you want to know that all the people have sent provisions that cannot get to you,but there was something they could do about it?
