Help Those Impacted by Natural Disasters

 

Even though we’re super excited about the EMA on Sunday, we can’t forget that in other parts of the world, people are dealing with major challenges. We’d like to take a brief moment to send our thoughts and prayers to all of the people that were devastated by Hurricane Sandy throughout the Caribbean and USA. In Cuba alone, one million people are in need of a new home or major repairs to their homes.

 

This recent tragedy reminds us that people around the world have to face the consequences of natural disasters every day.

 

MTV has teamed up with the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies who are essential first responders in all these situations. Two out of three disasters never reach the headlines of international newspapers. But regardless, the Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers are responding to all disasters-big or small-and also working alongside people to help them prepare for disasters.
