Each time there is a major natural disaster, the media is all over it with news and footage. This is good if you want to know what is going on, but I have seen times where the facts are hyped up and footage of people really needing help. Of course, instead of helping, all the media does is filming.
I see no point why they can't help out, and don't even give me that bull "but the world has to see what is going on". Thats just a weak &"&£^$* excuse to sit and do nothing. Put down that camera and help some people! Use the resources you have for filming people suffering the whole time and get people food, water and any help they need. You will do a lot more good helping some people than showing the world the suffering.
Onto what you can do to help:
