The topic I would like to talk about is "After the earthquake in Haiti begins the race against time"

The USA, Germany and other countries sent staff to Haiti for helping the people after the earthquake. More than 3 Million people in Haiti will need the help. According to a doctor the people in Haiti especially need water. Until now hundred of thousands died by virtue of the earthquake.

A race against the time started. Forces searched two days from Tuesday in rubbles for surviving. Doctors fight for the life of the injured. Often they had to do without water, too. In the capital is big chaos and equalizes lays everywhere.

According to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), three million people need urgent assistance. "There is no water. There is nothing, ". "People are dying and are thirsty." Doctors treated survivors in two hospitals which were not destroyed in the quake. In addition, two makeshift clinics was set up in tents.

The USA sent 2000 Marines, civilian workers, ships, transport aircraft and helicopters in the Caribbean state. U.S. President Barack Obama announced an aid package of 100 million U.S. dollars for earthquake victims.

Many city residents took off on foot on the path to rural areas, where huts of wood and stone have remained largely intact.

In my opinion, there are many workers in danger, but I think it's great that there are people who help, despite the risk. Also when people are not able to save lifes, can help the victims who have no home and are suffering from hunger and thirst. You can donate money, so that they are sent forces and food to Haiti.
