This is how the world works-white vs blacks. They only hit UK once and d donation is enuf to rebuild Nigeria. Buh they hear of the one happening in Africa, what contribution have dey made. Unfortunately this monies can't bring the dead bak and those in d hosp r being taken care of so why not channel this monies to African countries experiencing similar pain idiots period.

@Esther Norah. Ever heard of the word 'patriotism'?
Well that's what these dudes displayed. That alongside compassion.
If we Africans can't do this for ourselves, who then do we expect to do it for us? Outsiders?... Don't be a dreamer. By the way, how many times have you supported a cause such as this?

I think you guys should check your stats well before typing whatever you like. Do you know how much foreign aid we receive annually from US and the UK. We receive aid for everything we go through. Aid to fight aids, malaria, polio, insurgency. It's a really long list. What aid has the senators and the politicians that people keep fighting and killing theirselves every election done to their immediate community. Why una no just go collect their economy. Ungrateful people
