I hope aid continues to flow this horrible disaster. I was part of the disaster releif in El Salvador in the 2001 8.1 earthquake. Our victims were not as bad, but the epicenter was only a few miles from the coast. This caused thousands of buildings to colapse. I was actually their during the quake and it was amazing.
The biggest problem we had in the relief; was no organization! People who hadn't really never had much food or money before the disaster were now being given food that could last them a month. Fights would break out over food, noodles, rice, water! I saw people killed over chewing gum. I headed up a group that did some demolition work and rebuilding of homes, people who were rich and very well off would beg us to help with their homes. I would go into some and find 10 to 20 care bags of releif food and supplies tucked away in their closets. I was so saddened by this.
I hope that the relif effort organizes itself, if not they are in for a rude awakening.
