    International aid pledges for Haiti quake relief

    Thu Jan 14, 6:14 pm ET

    A glance at some of the international aid pledges for victims of the earthquake in Haiti:

    The U.S. government is making an initial $100 million relief effort and is sending ships, helicopters, transport planes and 2,000 Marines.

    Canada is sending $5 million Canadian (US$4.8 million) and matching contributions by individual Canadians to eligible charitable organizations up to a total of $50 million Canadian (US$47 million). Ottawa also is sending two navy ships, helicopters, transport planes and a disaster response team.

    The World Bank is providing a $100 million grant, and the U.N. is sending $10 million.

    Britain is sending $10 million. A four-person government assessment team and 71 rescue specialists along with search dogs and heavy equipment arrived Thursday.

    Australia has pledged $9.3 million; Norway, about 30 million kroner ($5.3 million); Japan, up to $5 million; Italy, euro1 million ($1.46 million); and the European Commission, euro3 million ($4.37 million).

    The Netherlands and the Italian bishops' conference have each donated euro2 million. Denmark has donated 10 million kroner ($1.9 million) and Finland is giving euro1.25 million ($1.8 million). South Korea has pledged aid worth $1 million.

    Spain has pledged euro3 million ($4.37 million), and sent rescue teams and 100 tons of equipment. Germany gave euro1.5 million ($2.17 million) and sent an immediate response team.

    India and China will each donate $1 million and China is sending a 60-member relief team with sniffer dogs.

    Sweden has offered 6 million kronor ($850,000), along with tents, water purification equipment and medical aid. It is also sending a team to build a new base to replace the U.N.'s destroyed headquarters.

    Irish telecommunications company Digicel said it would donate $5 million and help repair the phone network.

    U.S. cell phone users have contributed more than $5 million in $10 increments to the Red Cross for Haiti disaster relief, by texting the word "Haiti" to the number 90999.

    Venezuela has sent doctors, firefighters and rescue workers. Mexico will send doctors, search-and-rescue dogs and infrastructure experts. French President Nicolas Sarkozy said 400 staff from the public security authority are being sent, as well a ship with two surgical operating units, 50 beds for injured and earth-moving equipment.

    Iceland and Portugal are each sending more than 30 rescue workers. Taiwan has sent 23 rescue workers and two tons of aid and equipment.

    Israel plans to open a field hospital and is sending 220 rescue workers.

    A Swiss rescue team is arriving overland from the Dominican Republic. A flight carrying 40-50 tons of aid goods is planned for Friday.

    The International Committee of the Red Cross has 3,000 body bags in the shipment of 40-50 tons of aid scheduled to leave from Geneva to Haiti on Thursday night.


    Why would he do that? Because once the dollar is worthless, we will be taken over by the World Government.

    Considering the state of the U.S. economy, we shouldn't be sending ANY cash. I understand providing humanitarian assistance in the form of personnel from government agencies, and possibly food and other supplies. If private citizens wish to donate, that would be their option.

    Being the the U.S. is broke, at war and in serious financial trouble, shipping millions of dollars overseas to a sovereign foreign nation isn't a very responsible thing to be doing at this point in time.

    I feel for the folks in Haiti, but we need to take care of the American people before we're able to assist others.

    Just a little more proof of whose side he's really on as far as I'm concerned. This man in not an American and does not have America's best interest in mind when making these decisions.

    Not only is Obama sending $100 million in aid to Haiti but he's also saying that we will rebuild it. The pockets of our citizenry don't go that deep. IMHO he's been trying to bankrupt our nation from the beginning of his administration. $4 trillion in added debt in only 1 year speaks for itself.

    The US military should be there because it is the only organization on the planet that can provide the logistical support needed at this time.

    The American people will step up and provide more support than the rest of the world combined.

    The US government should not give a single dime of monetary support because we have already given billions with no accountability what so ever.

    And how much of the money sent will be used to buy solid gold statues to sit poolside at the Hatian presiden's new house?

    Our politicians have been steadily working to destroy the middle class for a long time and Obama may do more than any before him. They want a ruling elite class with everyone else to be surfs.
