Blog for Reuters

Mark Snelling in a compelling blog from Lebanon for the British Red Cross and wrote about his impressions.

It Starts:

Day 1 The last time I saw rubble like this was the Java earthquake in Indonesia. The same twisted metal, the same pulverised concrete. But this is not a natural disaster. It is the work of men and machines, just one more community devoured by the omnivorous appetites of armed conflict.

Here the Reuters Alertnet Foundation is giving a voice, not to mention its network reach, to individuals and organisations (in the case the Red Cross).

It is a relationship that has some considerable benefits for both parties.

Where the Red Cross goes, so too can others.

An interesting PR opportunity.
