what should be done to help the people of Haiti?
What are the immediate concerns – the short term needs of Haitians?
What about long term aid as well…what needs to be planned for the future?
Oxfam is planning and doing this
And of course have you donated? What are musicians doing? My school had a non school uniform day and raised over £1,000; that’s more than £1 per student. the most ever raised for such an appeal.
As the dust literally settles, patterns emerge after the quake.
This is the bbc’s main page on the disaster. Look at the influences of the ‘logistics’ (which means organising) of getting the aid from the airport to the people that need it.
Look at the influence of building construction
Look at the pictures of the disaster area.
Look at the influence of technology in raising money for Haiti(the tweet campaign in the usa)
If you cannot remember how earthquakes happen….
Ask yourself “Why did so many people die in this quake? Was it just the physical reasons and charateristics of the earthquake? Or did the features and make up of the country (Haiti is the poorest country anywhere in North, Central or southern America) play a part?
Also if you check the video links on the left of the page, you will find out a lot more about the disaster….
Arctic terns live for 30 years ….how many miles would they clock up during that time?
