Change of pace

This is something you don't hear very often, not coming from a third world country which is usually on the receiving side of aid, not the giving side:

' "It's disastrous, it's devastating, I feel so sorry for these people," said Abdulwahab Garba, a pump attendant at a filling station in the Nigerian capital Abuja, waving a copy of a newspaper with a front-page picture from the disaster zone.

"If I had money I would have contributed for food and shelter. I don't have money, but my assistance is to pray for them," he said. '

I disagree!
Empathy comes from experience - from people who can really imagine what others are going through.
I think all these poor countries showing their good hearts is one wonderful development.
