For the last couple of years, the natural disasters as we have heard such as the famous Tsunami, earthquakes, and super typhoons have added to the already miserable lives of the unfortunate people of today. There have been a number of people who have perished while the ones who did not would need to claw their way back to get back on their feet.
Disaster relief missions provide a temporary assistance, especially to stricken regions and countries. This is the beauty of what allied nations have today. Despite political indifferences, in times of need, this doesn�t matter. The Red Cross is usually the first one to respond to such needs and this has been their trademark for some years now.
While there are people who do not think twice, the joint efforts for such disaster stricken countries is highly commendable. Without such efforts, who knows how many people may have suffered a worst fate today.
