200 million for Haiti, 2 million for Pakistan?

That’s how much (or little) Germans have donated privately to the victims of the flood catastrophe in Pakistan so far; 2 million euros.

I’m not going to judge anybody here, you should donate what you feel like donating. But that’s the problem with Pakistan, I guess. For some strange reason, the Haitians’ suffering was one hundred times more deserving than the suffering going on in Pakistan right now, or felt like it was.

Image isn’t everything. Or is it the only thing?

UN-Angaben zufolge warten rund sechs Millionen Menschen dringend auf Nahrung, Wasser, Medizin und ein Obdach.
