Our county’s residents are always magnificently supportive of those in crisis around the world, whether it be survivors of a tsunami in Sri Lanka, a cyclone in Bangladesh, an earthquake in Haiti or children living in an area of the Soviet Union contaminated by a nuclear power plant accident in the Eighties.
