    For an EU State that ranks 10th in the world for natural resources and is the EU’s 7th Biggest Market 50,000 is not enough. Romania can a lot more then 50,000. Romania can do more then 1,000,000 Euros or more if it decides.

    This wonderful gesture from Romania is a stark contrast in what the little and Third World EU member Bulgaria did yesterday and that was to personally profiteer Bulgarians and to take advantage of Haiti’s extremely unfortunate position. Haiti has already stripped Bulgaria of its trust and rightly deserved. Haiti needs support and honest commitment to the rehabilitation process. Romania has and is proving an honest, dedicated approach to reconstructing Haiti.

    The recent personal profiteering and taking advantage of Haiti is a real disappointment to the new Bulgarian humanitarian aid commissioner
