With all the coverage of the damage in the United States caused by Hurricane Sandy, it hit me that just a few days earlier, the same storm made landfall in the Caribbean. Cuba, Jamaica and Haiti...all faced the wrath of Sandy and yet, I haven't seen anything on the news here in Canada about the damages, death tolls and aftermath. I'm just putting up a few newsfeed photos (not mine) to remind myself that this is not just an American news story. Haiti, particularly, is suffering and will continue to. 40 - 50% of their food crops have been destroyed meaning food security is once again diminished.
I'm just going to leave you with this: take a few minutes...look up your favourite charity and find out if they are working in Haiti and throw a little support behind them. It doesn't diminish what is happening on the Eastern seaboard of the United States but the states that are affected have 40+ other states standing with them. Who is standing up for these?
