Disasters Emergency Committee by Loretto on 25 March 2013 4:57pm
 
I found out about this today. What a good man Palin is. I will donate to the DEC.

I am reading Cormac McCarthy's book The Road and thinking how sad for the world if this really came to pass, truth is in Syria it already has.

It is a terrible situation. I just hope the money we donate gets there.

Syria is a major disaster. Assad will fall eventually, but Syria may collapse.

I thought the DEC was for natural disasters. The Syria problem is for the politicians. I'd hate to think of any of my DEC money going to aid any of the sides in the Syria problem. The Red Cross or Christian Aid might be a better charity to donate to for the Syria problem.
There was an enormous earthquake in Iran about 2 weeks ago and then another with many aftershocks in China. I hope the DEC are aiding the affected people in these areas.

Or even Amnesty International to help the refugees return home.

There were no notable earthquakes in the northern hemisphere over the past 24 hours.

I saw a couple of weeks ago that the DEC are helping out with containing the ebola outbreak in west Africa.
