Bye, Bye Mubarak

The Egyptian zealots of Tahrir Square have won!

I salute the brave zealots of Tahrir Square in Cairo who stood their ground against the draconian laws of President Hosni Mubarak.

The will of the people of Egypt has prevailed over the evil reign of President Hosni Mubarak as he surrendered and handed over power to military. This is the end of the kleptomaniac government of one of the most corrupt rulers in Africa.

The wind of change began blowing from Tunisia three weeks ago and sent President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali packing. Now the second autocratic government to fall is that of Hosni Mubarak. Who is next?

The wind of change blowing in North Africa will spread to the rest of Africa and will be welcomed in Zimbabwe where the life president Robert Mugabe will either resign in peace or be disgraced out of office.

InterAction Members Respond to the Crisis in Zimbabwe

WASHINGTON, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Basic government services are not being provided in Zimbabwe. The public health system has collapsed and cholera and other communicable diseases are rampant. Staggering inflation and unemployment have resulted in shortages of food and fuel. Estimates are that 300,000 people remain at risk of cholera, which is being spread by a shortage of clean water and a lack of functioning sanitation services. To date, the outbreak has claimed over 600 lives.

InterAction members, along with their partner agencies, are providing numerous humanitarian interventions focusing on water, sanitation, hygiene, food distributions, medicine procurement and distribution, health services, education and relief to communities displaced by violence.

A regularly updated list of agencies responding is available at:

InterAction has also developed guidelines on the most appropriate ways to help those affected by overseas disasters:

InterAction is a coalition of more than 170 U.S.-based private relief, international development and refugee assistance organizations. InterAction members have agreed to abide by a set of standards to ensure accountability to donors, professional competence and quality of service.
