Reflections on the Haiti Victims

Reflections on the Haiti Victims

According to the Haitian Government report, due to Hati earthquake an estimated 230,000 people had died, 300,000 had been injured and 1,000,000 made homeless. Mass graves were dug, but Max Beauvoir, a Vodou priest, was not in favor of the Mass graves: “ It is not in our culture to bury people in such a fashion, it is desecration”.

Appeals to help the Haiti victims were made by several organisatios and UNO. Several nations sent medicine, food packets, water containers to help the victims.90% buildings were damaged or destroyed.
After this catastrophe, the great Nature poet Wordsworth won’t glorify Nature by describing it as the best teaher gaurdian and philosopher.

U.S. President Barack Obama declared that former presidents Bill Clinton, , and George W. Bush would coordinate efforts to raise funds to help the Haiti victims .

UNICEF spokesperson said, “We’re all overwhelmed with the response to Charlie’s bike ride. We’ve never known anything like it. We’ve never had anyone raise £60,000 in one day for us before.” The most remarkable fact is that Charlie’s little cycle round the park with his dad has turned into something a lot bigger than that and we can’t believe it,” his mother said. In March 2010, Charlie was able to collect £210,000. The whole world is proud of Charlie.
