A walk through the many internet portals offered in our today`s cyberspace contains a myriad of offers of new and already established organizations, private and company pages, blogs and websites either to join or view for the entertainment of our eyes.
I am a part of this myriad insofar it is a necessity in my job be it concerts, events or lectures but also the interest in many other fields like the human race in general and our opportunities in the today`s may be complex world of differences, cultures and social conditions.
The disaster on Haiti already learned us a lot in terms of help, assistance and infrastructure that made the conditions for the various organizations like Red Cross, Médecins Sans Frontières and even well trained military people to a nightmare. It is obvious to those who have been and the people now continuing with a helping hand on Haiti that the powerful nature is unbeatable whenever we are faced with such facts as seen now and in the past.
Appreciated is it whenever people outside “the eye of the tornado” will assist and help whether professionals or not. The professionals does have the skills and training to handle such rescue situations . the problem is however, that we are in need of people with those qualifications.
I have always devoted part of my life in the social work and in different fields whether in action out there in the areas in need for help or by debating meetings and pressure on our politicians for more financial means to this huge area of either social disasters or lack of education in the so called developing countries.
Recently I accepted the nomination as a Goodwill Ambassador for Thessen for Humanities insofar I found the set-up and goals interesting having wide spread opportunities for people engaged in work for humanity on earth. I have always been somewhat skeptical whenever now organizations are introduced in this field of humanitarian work and still amazed when I notice that many new “mushrooms” popping up in our cyberspace universe throughout the years.
Working with humans needs skills and lots of training and in many cases I doubt that the founders behind new portals or websites are without the necessary insight and knowledge to the actual work with people either in need for food, deceases that might spread through bigger areas, victims for wars and all those who are left in nowhere be it children who lost their parents or refugees caught in a trap between war fighting parties or political terror.
The word humanity may have a lot of different aspects in meanings and how to place projects under this multiple issue. It is not unusual whenever we hear the sentence “treat others like you want to be treated yourself” , thence be it quite important to know how we want to be treated ….and it is of course quite individual insofar our genes are so different in all aspects of our receiving minds and ability to know our own inner soul from A to Z.
Our imagination of humanity in the western world may be framed into the rules valid for the Human Right Organization, but it can be much better by further actions and education in the human nature which in any case should be the same from born to death and to follow our senses given us as a gift should prevent any kind of violence or negligence of other people whether color, race, sick or insane, religion or political views.
All the best and stay tuned in your work for those who needs help.
