Tsunami cash from the Caribbean

Monday, January 10, 2005

In Guyana, a telethon received pledges of more than US$60,000. Despite its billing as one of the poorest countries in the hemisphere, Guyana has actively joined the aid effort.
President Bharrat Jagdeo announced a grant of $50,000 to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) to support humanitarian work among the region's children.
A local newspaper, The Kaiteur News, said it had also raised $60 000.
Almost 150,000 people were killed and 500,000 were rendered homeless from the Dec. 26 tsunami that swept across six Asian nations.
In many other Caribbean countries, governments, the private sector and communities have been involved in similar fund-raising.
This week the Jamaica government set up a special national tsunami aid fund, to which it made an initial contribution of two hundred and forty-four thousand dollars.

Sad situation
I'm not form Trinidad but I feel deeply compelled to voice my opinion on this issue. What sense does it make for poor countries like Trinidad, Jamaica and Guyana to pledge money to the Asian relief effort when most of our population are just as poor as those who suffered in the disaster? Its a slap in the face, especially when you have developed nations such as AMERIKKKA, Europe and nations in the Middle East whose arms have to be twisted in order to get money that they are probably going to spend on their fancy cars and country clubs. In all honesty its a sad thing what happened in Asia but please remember theres an even worse tragedy happening all over Africa and no one seems to be concerned. So I beg all of these CARICOM heads of state to please get your priorities straight and start looking after your own people.
