I will leave you with this simple link to examine:
There, you will see not just how much money and resources Japan donated to US during Hurricane Katrina, but you will also see how much other countries
donated. Notice Afghanistan.
This is to those of you who are saying, "Well, Japan wouldn't/didn't/would never donate to the United States if anything happened" - check it:
The Japanese Foreign Ministry said that it would provide $200,000 to the American Red Cross to assist victims of Hurricane Katrina. Japan also
identified needs in affected regions via the U.S. government and provided up to $300,000 in emergency supplies such as tents, blankets and power
generators if they receive requests from the U.S. for such assistance. One Japanese individual, Takashi Endo, donated USD 1 million from his personal
funds to Katrina relief efforts.
I mean, come on people. We're humans - not animals. Stop hating and help if you can.
Also, notice for example how the countries that perhaps couldn't afford money per se, they contributed with what they could - like Indonesia:
Offered to send 45 doctors and 155 other medical staffers and 10,000 blankets to help survivors.
Even Iraq gave us $1,000,000.
As I heard in a movie once, "We are all children of the Earth" - no matter how lame and corny that sounds, it's true.
