After more than 2,000 people died, the World Bank is planning to loan $900 million to Pakistan due to the worst floods that hit this country in the past 80 years. Unfortunately, the aids given to Pakistan reached extremely hard to people and the infected water could kill more lives.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are willing to donate a huge amount of money to help people affected by the floods. “I think as people completely understand the scale of it they will do more. “I know that we’ve been talking to different people about where to put our money – who to give it to and when. I think maybe people are ready to give money… hopefully they’re just waiting to understand what’s the best thing to do”, said the actress.
Nowadays, three million people affected by the earthquake have no access to international aid because of the bad infrastructure of the country. The rescue teams can’t handle anymore the desperate situation.
In Haiti are almost 30 rescue international teams, consisting of 1.500 people, but the rescue operations of survivors are chaotic conducted. At least one little girl died due to lack of inadequate rescue equipment, although she was pulled out alive under debris, where she survived four days.
The doctors complain they don’t have drugs, and those which are already on Port-au-Prince airport, will not be distributed until the American contingent of 3.500 soldiers will arrive.
Medical teams have to abandon the wound people in the middle of the night because they are afraid of being attacked and robbed by thieves. Even if they caught several fugitives among escaped prisoners from Port-au-Prince jail, destroyed by the quake, the Haitian police officers can’t manage to control the situation.
Majority of those 1000 American soldiers which already arrived in Haiti are guarding the airport where the donated supplies are, for fear that hungered people will attack.
Meanwhile, a political polemic took shape. It seems that France and Nicaragua accuse U.S. of trying to control Haiti by sending to many intervention troops, in expense of humanitarian aid.
