Haiti earthquake - sympathy and condolences

by grimgraphix / January 14, 2010 2:29 AM PST

Best wishes to the people of Haiti.

I hope the damage ends up being less than what it appears to be right now... but if it is as bad as it appears, I hope that the world community can join together as it has during recent natural disasters in other parts of the world to give aid.

The country is the poorest in the west anyway and just cannot manage another catastrophe like this.

There seems to be quite an outpouring of assistance and I

think that this time things may get done properly.

They need earthquake proof hospitals, administrative centres, and offices for NGO's. They need a decent road system, and safe water. They need plans for a cheap earthquake proof single family dwelling, which should be within the reach of the world wide architectural community to design. They also need an alternative to de-forestation in order to cook. It should be achievable, assuming you can keep the crooks out of the mix.
