This causes thousands of people to become homeless and displaced. Also, not every household had flood insurance, so then FEMA stepped in to assist these people. This process of FEMA stepping in to help people in need of emergency help is very expensive. Government funds are used to give people mobile homes to live in and money to help fix their destroyed homes. Insurance companies were pounded after the storm with many insurance claims due to all the flooding and wind damage.
Task 3 Case Study – “I am Sam” In everyone’s lives Advocacy is important, but it is even more important should you have a disability. In this case study I will be expressing my opinion on where an advocate would of helped Sam and his daughter (Lucy) from the movie “I am Sam”. It is quiet chilling that Sam and Lucy did not get help in so many parts of this movie. It really shows you how people can slip through the system when professionals do not recognise intervention from the beginning could actually prevent so much hard ache for many families. Sam had a few people in his life during his journey of parenthood on his own.
Though the Red Cross established the orphanages, nuns where the people that maintained it. Nuns also ran orphanages during the storm and did their best to keep the children safe though many had failed and died along with children. Even though a lot of progress has been made on recovering the city never recovered from this. 115 years have passed and the population has only grown by about 20,000 and this is a city that was once named the Wall Street of the South and former capitol of Texas. Sadly nowadays the city is one big ghetto and few ancient neighborhoods still stand but this city is haunted with the eerie memory of this
It is also great that they used the church pews for a place for homeless people to sleep, so they would not freeze outside. I was shocked to see how government funding does not benefit whatsoever for people who are on welfare. I was astonished to hear that people living in government housing and on welfare get $500 a month for living, and $400 of that goes towards rent. How do they expect people to live off of $100 for groceries, clothing, etc? That blew me away to see how people can actually survive off of that.
Which was that wealth should be used to improve society. Many of these captains did not believe in waiting until they died before helping others and felt the best way to help people is by providing jobs that could then allow the person to afford needs and some wants and also working with government and charities to help provide with those how needed help. The number one goal was to provide jobs. By working with government and other charities he can benefit those less fortunate by being able to see what the need is now. It’s wonderful to have a trust set up after a person dies to provide for such charity however failing during your lifetime to help with those charities does no one any good.
According to Singer, it takes only $200 to save a child's life, and yet so many people are able but not willing to donate. Singer should not have demanded people to donate every cent of their extra money to save a child because it really redirects the attention of the audience he’s trying to persuade. I think a person with a good moral judgement would have redirected the train and saved the child regardless of the car. Material things can be replaced but the lives of people
Many people, young and old, had to deal with heartbreak. No one was immune to the loss of life or possessions. I got to meet many of the kids impacted by the hurricane at the Vacation Bible School our church had arranged. It was tragic for me to see all of those children, so young and innocent, having to deal with an event so horrifying. Many of them tattered and broken like their homes and families.
For example the first stanza starts of by telling us that they the homeless, though there are millions of people in the city who have some kind of home but the refugees have nowhere to go. The phrase ‘yet there is no place for us my dear’ suggests how they view society as unfair in the way that it treats people. The poem then moves on to talk about how they cannot even leave the country due them not having a passport and the poem describes people in that position as ‘officially dead’ suggesting they have absolutely nowhere or no-one to turn to. Though the poet describes the committee advice as ‘polite’ the fact that they were asked to return ‘next year’ clearly presents the fact that no real help was offered and that they were still left with nowhere to go for today. The poet also uses many contrasts throughout the piece such as ‘ten million souls’, ‘ten thousand soldiers’.
The Rodriguez Family Tony Ledwell Walden University The Rodriguez family just experienced a major flood in the community that destroyed their home and businesses in the surrounding area. Michael and Sarah are the parents of two daughters and they only had one source of income because Michael is a full time student earning a degree. Sarah does not have employment due to this natural disaster. According to James and Gilliland (2013), such a plan needs to consider what options are available to the client and what choices need to be made in regard to those options. During this crisis, the Rodriguez family may need emotional support from mental health professionals because the event that occurred maybe too overwhelming for them.
Using a tectonic activity you have studied, how effective was the management of the event? On 12th January 2010, at 16:53, a Magnitude 7 earthquake struck with epicentre just a short distance west of Port-au-Prince, the Haitian capital city. 3,000,000 people required aid, 230,000 died, and 1,000,000 people were made homeless. It is true to say that a M7 earthquake would cause devastation in any country, but this was particularly so in Haiti due to the poor management of the event. There are three main factors to consider when assessing the management of a tectonic event: prediction, preparation, and response.
