Aussie gives to Haiti disaster

AUSTRALIANS have been quick to donate generously to appeals for help for victims of earthquake-ravaged Haiti, with money providing clean water and shelter.
World Vision Australia said people had shown "amazing compassion", with their Haiti appeal so far raising more than $725,000, which is on par with donations received after the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami.

"The generosity of ordinary Australians will make a direct, meaningful difference to the lives of people affected by the Haiti earthquake," World Vision spokeswoman Anthea Spinks said in a statement.

As part of World Vision's worldwide operation, an aircraft carrying 18 tonnes of emergency supplies arrived in the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince this afternoon.

Items included tarpaulins for temporary shelter, blankets, hygiene kits, cooking sets and water containers.

This is above the 10 million dollars the Australian government has given to the disaster.

Poland on the other hand gave 50,000$ then increased to 150,000. how mean are they?

Oz is a richer country.
In Poland people are dying through lack of funds too -do you know what's happening in the health service here?
Poland also gave in terms of emergency workers.

Re: Aussie gives to Haiti disaster


Poland has less money to give away.
