I fully agree that the children of the sovereign & great dominion of Haiti need to of course be first & foremost fed, given water, shelter, medicines and such. But since we have French Language component courses in Elementary through High School, we should send correspondence course assignment booklets and texts that are about to be thrown away & new courses that could be printed by Queen's Printer at a low, bulk rate to Haitian children as soon as possible.
This not only will give them a sense of foundation, it will show that we as Albertans care about their educational needs. Especially important if the children in question are orphaned or have outright lost all of their relatives. This not only makes sense to send out the French assignment booklets, but the English ones as well. The majorative population of Haiti speaks Francais, so sending them courses in Diction, Social Studies, Forensic Science, Mathematics, etc. only makes sense. Lets stimulate the minds of the children and relax them with the course work so that they can grow up and put not just their bodies, but their intelligencia to work in rebuilding their fantastic nation & culture. Its time to give the Haitian children an educational grounding, lets make them smarter in mind, so that they will be proud to be Haitians and not fear for the future. This will ensure that they do not feel they are alone, but are admired and respected for their thoughts as well as emotions and physical actions.
