Quote: GlennA said: I have spent 3 days searching for news of friends trappeed in a diaster of biblical proportion and seen to many pictures of the remains of places of which I have fond memories all the while in fear that a dear frind's home lo longer exist. If one cannot find a bit of humor in this chaos depression would be the result and at a time like this depression is our worst enemy.
to this end (gallows humour) ... at least Mal won't be complaining about CGB being packed with cruise ship tourists for a while.....
On a serious note - all this volunteering has me thinking Chicken or egg situation... Where would the volunteers be housed ? Shelter is short for locals, much less do-good visitors Then there is food shortage, and have you noticed how many vehicles are destroyed.... Not sure how something like this plays out best
Seems a bit of basic infrastructure must first come back before the volume of helping hands arrives
