WITH the cyclone, Sidr, wreaking havoc in Bangladesh, the country needs immediate international aid. More than five thousand people have been killed. We are not properly equipped to deal with a disaster of this magnitude. Many people are still marooned in places like the sea area. We have no clue as to how people affected by the cyclone are surviving in various parts of the country.
The communication system is in a shambles and therefore government or NGO aid is not reaching people in the affected areas. I request Bangladeshi expatriates and various international aid groups to help the people in Bangladesh to tide over this crisis.
Heavy sea storm SIDR attack south part of Bangladesh. Over five thousands people were died. This is huge natural disaster. We face this type of disaster before various times. We take preparation but it’s not enough this type of natural disaster. We have not huge equipment to rescue affected people in rural area. Still now we not know their condition. In sea area lots of people are suffering for aid. Communication system is totally out of control. For this reason government aid or NGO’s aid not reach the affected area. Power fails again and again. This year we face huge flood. Now SIDR attack and disaster whole Bangladesh especially south part of Bangladesh. We need international aid. I requested Bangladeshi who lived in aboard and international various aid groups please hurry send aid for affected people.
