A wide variety of NGOs are active in this field, but the evaluations of their effectiveness “have been patchy at best” says Robert Glasser, Secretary General of CARE International. In his article for Europe’s World he takes a deep look at the NGOs’ flaws. (SPRING 2008)

  1. I have analyzed your article and I have mixed the opinion of the author. It is an actual problem that all the massive disasters require a help from everybody require a massive disaster relief effort. And I agree that the NGOs don’t respond effectively to humanitarian emergencies.

  2. To my mind much has been spoken about natural disasters and how people should cope with them. We must remember that we live in one planet and it is our home. That’s why we are all “neighbours”. And “neighbours” can help each other in difficult situations.

  3. I have mixed this idea. I’m not a good expert in all these problems but as an ordinary man I worry about our future life and the life of our children. What can we see? Natural disasters everywhere: The Central America, The China, the islands. We are afraid of it.

  4. It goes without saying that Natural disasters, such as those in Myanmar and China, require a massive disaster relief effort. And it is good even if small measures are taken.

  5. Of course, finding grounds for optimism in the global warming debate isn’t easy. But what else is left for human beings? We should support each other because we are all “sisters and brothers”. Agree?
