There are reports surfacing that show that some of the food being sent to the people of Haiti contained bugs and worms! While I think it is important to send the monetary donations, I think it’s equally important to send food, water and clothing. If you don’t have a charity that you’re working through, gather these essentials and send them on your own. These people can’t afford to go too many more days without the bare essentials. Here’s one clip supplied by Real News.com that shows what these survivors received:
When I paused this clip, I noticed the name on the box was “WFP” which stands for World Food Programme under the United Nations (U.N.) Now… I’ve heard mixed reviews about whether the U.N. is on the side of “good vs. evil” (I can’t say “yah” or “nay” at this point). BUT… I do have to wonder how these food supplies can go past any expiration dates without someone (a department or division) being aware, yet they were still shipped! This “potential oversight” is ATROCIOUS!
While working overseas (in conjunction) with the military, MRE’s (Meals Ready [to] Eat) should be what our officials SHOULD be sending. MRE’s have a much longer expiration date, are a greater source for essential nutrition and can sustain a person if they can only have one meal per day (if necessary and are pretty tasty too). I’ve tried them personally, so I know of what I speak here. I genuinely hope this is some “horrible” oversight and NOT intentional. Also, I can’t help but notice how much we’re being indoctrinated more and more to simply “TRUST OUR OFFICIALS” lately, ESPECIALLY in recent months. But more and more, our “officials” seem to keep making simple mistakes; “the left hand knows not what the right hand is doing”. There is no room for error for these people right now! FEMA and other major organizations (to include) the U.N.’s only purpose to aid during NATURAL DISASTER– these organizations should be “well oiled machines” at this point in time. Again… their only purpose is to AID DURING NATURAL DISASTERS!!! So please, send these bare essentials ON YOUR OWN!! Why O’ Why sent our first shipment this morning–so we happen to think other folks out there can do the same. I personally loathe going to the post office too. They are slow to move, hardly anyone “to man the counters” and more than often you are greeted with major attitude, BUT I stood in line for those fellow human beings who need every ounce of help they can get.
Some motivation: what if these people were you or YOUR loved ones? Displaced, needing food and water or a change of clothes!… SERIOUSLY. Surely we (all of us collectively) will NOT allow another “HURRICANE KATRINA” to take place by simply relying on “some outside sources” to help these people, will we? I mean… will we actually “allow” that to EVER happen again? Must I remind everyone who contributed to spending 10.66 Billion during the past Xmas holidays: Americans spent nearly 10.66 Billion on Xmas sales Friday?!! Really?!! (UPDATED)
This could potentially be any one of us one, one day. (For those who take that statement literally, I mean being affected by a Natural Disaster in your regions, i.e.; flooding, snow storms, hurricanes or earthquakes, etc., etc.).
