Introduction

Geography Essay. The aim of this essay is to tell the reader of different types of aid used and needed all over the world and how to deal with many disasters all over the world today. As an aftermath of the tsunami tidal wave that took place in the Indian Ocean on the 26 December 2004, caused many countries all over the world to rally together and help the assigned countries and islands hit which were: Sri Lanka, Burma, Bangladesh, Thailand, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, Somalia, Andaman Islands, Maldives, Tanzania, Seychelles, Kenya, Nicobar Islands. Many forms of aid have been given to these countries in many ways. After the disaster, people had to sit down and think of what things people would need and what long term and short term aid people in these countries would need. ...read more.

There have been problems that have hampered aid going in like, for example: *People have not had the money to send aid out to help, *Due to the tsunami, many roads have been washed away, *Airstrips have been damaged, flooded or blocked by debris, *Bridges and harbours have been washed away. When the disaster took place, many Non Government Organizations (NGO's) decided to help in any and every way they could. There were many charities that help and are still helping and these are: +Disasters Emergency Committee, +The World Food Programme, +Oxfam, +Islamic Relief, +Unicef, +Save the Children, +Care International, +Cafod, +Islamic Aid, +Muslim Hands, +British Red Cross, +Medair, +Handicap International, +World Vision, +International Medical Corps, +Christian Aid, +Tear fund, +Concern, +International Rescue Committee, +Salvation Army, +Medicins Sans Frontieres, +Muslim Aid, +UN Refuge Agency, +UNHCR, +Christian Aid, +Hindu Forum Disaster Relief Task Force, +Action Aid, +World Jewish Aid, +Action Against Hunger, +Merlin, +World Health Organization, +IFRC, +US Committee for Refugees, +Help The Aged. ...read more.

Conclusion

Aside of the aid being given, not all aid can help some people like the people who have lost family which they now have to face the impact of burying them but have to try and find them as they are burying people in mass graves and trenches as the present and latest death toll stands at the count of 280, 000 people. This essay shows that no matter how small or how bi the aid is that we donate and send to people, it is always needed in every single way aid is always needed because there are a lot of people less fortunate than ourselves so it means an awful lot more to those people than it does to us.
