Haiti

January 17, 2010

I was shocked by the news of an earthquake in Haiti.  My first thoughts were “the Caribbean doesn’t have earthquakes?” and then “what if that earthquake had happened in St Lucia?”, a much smaller island and one where I lived for over a decade and where my parents still live.

And then my thoughts returned to the Haitian people and the increased pain and suffering they have had to endure as a consequence of this natural disaster.

So I support Gordon Brown’s appeal for us Brits to give donations to the people of Haiti.  Experience has shown that disasters don’t respect borders, they can happen anywhere.  And it is for those who are unaffected to reach out and help those in need.
