This is what happens during a natural disaster. People get organized. They feel helpless here at home, so they donate to charities and read all they can about what is happening. Governments send in their disaster support teams and commit to helping the impacted area recover and rebuild. Aid agencies send in their most-skilled doctors, healthcare workers, construction crews and others to work on the ground helping people to survive and recover.
This all sounds great on the surface… People helping people. Governments recognizing that there is another country suffering and helping out. Aid agencies following through on their mandate and making sure that they’re doing all they can.
