Compassionate response to tsunami should flow to African crises

Compassionate response to tsunami should flow to crises in Africa - Leah Casselman, President, Ontario Public Service Employees Union - OPSEU
The world’s response to the tsunami disaster shows the compassion of ordinary folks the world over.

It seems to take natural disasters that grab the headlines and saturate radio and television to provoke our humanitarianism for the less well-off areas of the world. So far, billions have been donated to the tsunami aid efforts.

I commend the thousands of OPSEU members who contributed to the various organizations engaged in tsunami relief efforts. OPSEU also donated $10,000 to the Canadian Red Cross in aid of the victims.

Here’s wishing this same humanitarian attention could be sustained to the ongoing humanitarian struggles in Africa and in other areas of the world that are taking an even greater human toll....
