Natural disasters, not wars, prompt Brits to give to charity 21.12.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Study finds that people are more willing to donate when an emergency – such as a tsunami or earthquake – is seen as beyond human control

Fewer than a third of British people believe in the humanitarian principle that we have a duty to help everyone in distress, regardless of circumstances, according to a new survey conducted by the Charities Aid Foundation.

The research revealed that, beneath the generosity that people show in giving to charity, there is also a judgment – which means that people give far less money to help innocent people caught up in war or conflict than to people who suffer as a result of “natural” disasters, such as earthquakes or floods.

Ten years on, tsunami survivors in Indonesia hope to move on 20.12.2014 FirstPost: World

BANDA ACEH, Indonesia (Reuters) - A decade after a 10-metre (32-foot) tsunami washed away two of her three children, her home and business, Salawati is finally getting her life back on track in Indonesia's western-most Banda Aceh province. The 47 year old survivor of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, which killed 226,000 people around the region, is one of thousands who have gradually rebuilt their livelihoods from scratch with the help of billions of dollars in aid. "Our feelings are not like 10 years ago when I would feel sad if I talked about my tsunami experience," Salawti told Reuters in her hometown of Merduati on the island of Sumatra ahead of the 10th anniversary of the disaster.
