The problem has gone from major to catastrophic. Haiti, a small island nation in the Carribbean, was already the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere prior to a devastating 7.0 earthquake in January 2010. Its population of 9 million has dwindled and yet the jobless rate, crime and the number of hungry and sick has risen. As you read these words, humanitarian operations still struggle to coordinate effective relief to those in need.
Many have yet to realize we are all the same. We all have the same basic needs. We are all human. We are all in one global family.
