Problems with Tsunami Aid for Aceh

While your average John/Jane Doe donates generously and with no strings attached whatsoever – the big institutions are giving their donations reluctantly, and many came with so many strings attached, even a spider can be trapped in it.

I’ll document them in this post for your information :

  • Published as aid – but in reality, just another loan : USA was especially stingy about its aid to the tsunami victims, and only after being whipped by [ Mr. Egeland ] did they start increasing their “aid”. However, then it turned out that aid from them and several other countries are, in fact, loans. While Japan and other countries donated US$ 500 million straight away and with no strings attached.
    Another loan is actually harmful, since Indonesia is already very deep in debt, most of its budget is allocated for debt / interest payment – not for its own people.
  • Published as aid – but in reality, still unrealised / just a pledge: Another trick is to boast about one’s aid to the tsunami victim, while haven’t actually giving it out. If we looked into the Bam earthquake disaster in Iran, where US$ 1 billion was pledged but only a miniscule US$ 17.5 millions was realised, I think the victims would be better to forget about it now.
  • Published as aid – in reality; hidden conversion and/or kidnapping : Wahington Post already published that 300 orphans were taken from Aceh by WorldHelp, to be raised as Christians. This is SO wrong because (a) This is kidnapping, since Indonesian government has already forbid taking Acehnese children to outside Aceh, and (b) I don’t care about people preaching their religion to others, but when you have NO CHOICE (ie: you became a victim, taken away, then WILL be raised as Christians) then this is plain disgusting and an insult to their dead parents (which wouldn’t want to see their kids raised as non-Muslim).

If you have any more info about other disgusting acts at the time of this crisis, please let me know by commenting in this post. Help stop dishonest institutions/people from taking credit for what really is a crime, or something that they didn’t do.

Thank you.

    Orang yang percaya kepada Anak itu akan mendapat
    hidup sejati dan kekal. Tetapi orang yang tidak
    taat kepada Anak itu tidak mendapat hidup.
    Ia dihukum Allah untuk selama-lamanya

    Dan jikalau barang seorang tiada dijumpai
    namanya tersurat di dalam kitab hayat itu,
    maka ia pun dicampakkanlah ke dalam laut api itu

    In 2005 the state of Florida, USA was hit by numerous hurricans at a cost of several billion dollars and hundreds of lives lost. The number of Countries that sent aid for the dissaster relife was a big fat ZERO. We are still digging out so I would be careful with the stengy remarks.

    There’s a huge difference in situation – Indonesia is among the poorest country in the world. USA is among the richest, if not THE richest, country in the world.

    Naturally, people assume that your government can take care of their own people.
    Even a few countries hit by the last tsunami rejected foreign aids (while they’re definitely poorer than USA) and said they can take care of themselves.

    We are still digging out so I would be careful with the stengy remarks.

    I’m sorry to hear that. Hope you’ll get more help soon from your own government.

    Apologies, but I can’t see any benefit from statements like this. We’re all the same, of human race; and statements like this only serves to divide us. And pride of one’s nation has been way too many times manipulated by fascist leaders for their own benefit. An example, freedom activists in USA will sadly remember how it was like before 9/11 in USA, compared to now.

    I hate statements that seperate us as human beings. We are all equal. there should not be any division between us because of race or color. It really is a sad thing.
