We'll ALWAYS remember?
Is there a possible chance that the china flood was planned?
How did china cope with the terrifying disaster?
Mentally, Emotionally, Physically & financially and economically.
How is china's perspective now on life?

I think to improve humanitarian relief efforts we must have the people prepared for a disaster. We also need the first responders to respond as soon as the disaster hits.

Thoughts on how to improve humanitarian relief efforts in the aftermath of a disaster
My thoughts are,
Humanitarian aid's Spring into action to:
-Help save lives
-Alleviate suffering (Less Severe)
-maintain/protect human dignity
-During/aftermath
To include:
-reconstruction and rehabilitation
-disaster prevention and preparedness
