Jesus wept.

So what are we doing about this then?

Have donated this evening via www.dec.org.uk. I always feel so helpless watching these news reports, and feel like I should be doing more.

Ever since becoming a mum I can barely watch things like this, I feel so helpless. I donated and then thought it wasn't enough, so we sold cakes today at school and are having a non uniform day to raise money, should be around £500 raised by next week, makes me feel a bit more like I am doing something, but I also feel like it can never help really, they need so much more.

I cannot imagine being in that situation, we are so lucky to have such trivial problems sometimes I think.
