The world body says that with the severe Himalayan winter just weeks away and many survivors of the Oct. 8 quake without food or shelter, only about $111 million of $550 million needed for emergency relief has been provided.

Why do you think this is? I know the Red Cross is still administering hurricaine aid, but aren't they an international organization? It puzzles me why there hasn't been the same kind of outpouring we saw with the tsunami and hurricaines. I bet Americans would donate if they knew where to send money, but I don't know of any organization that has mobilized for this cause.
