Issue being discussed:
A powerful earthquake struck Nepal and sent tremors through northern India on Saturday, killing over 1,000 people, toppling a 19th-century tower in the capital Kathmandu and touching off a deadly avalanche on Mount Everest.
Opinion: I believe that in times that other countries are in crisis, we need to lend a helping hand.
Quoted from a netizen from Facebook, "All it take is for every Singaporean to donate $1 to Red Cross Singapore. We can easily raise more than $5 millions for Nepal as our population stand at 5.47 millions. If only everyone donate $1. So what are we waiting for? Donate now & stop behaving like stunned vegetables."
I agree with this netizen's point of view.
I believe no one would never want natural disasters to happen to us, as there would always be negative impacts on us. In this earthquake,I feel that it will be never easy for people to lose their loved ones, especially in a natural disaster. They may experience emotional trauma, as this earthquake is unexpected and the impact on them is really huge. We can consider ourself lucky, almost free of any natural disasters, but we definitely need to help these people, who lost their loved ones and are experiencing an emotional trauma. Therefore, we have to help them, whether emotionally, physically or financially. We might never know that such a small help, will cause a great impact on their lives.
