Kuwait Pledges Aid for Katrina

In a move that could relieve some of the pressure felt by higher gas prices and lowered supplies from Hurricane Katrina, Kuwait has pledged half a billion dollars worth of "oil products that the disaster-stricken states need in addition to other humanitarian aid." This follows a $100 million dollar pledge from Qatar, also for relief efforts from Katrina. These donations are very big of the governments of Qatar and Kuwait.

Many countries are now placing resources into relief, which will be greatly appreciated. It will take a couple years to clean up New Orleans, so the United States can use all the help it can get.
