Spare a thought today....

One year on from the earthquake, and people are still suffering.

  1. So much for the international aid effort...all the so called NGO experts...I have always thought that the best thing to do in a disaster is to repair the infrastructure and then give money to the people affected as they'll know best what they need.

    But that would never do....we hear a lot about 'empowerment', but actual empowerment doesn't happen.

  2. Fly: Oh I agree. It's always those on the outside of a disaster who think they know best.
