BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) – Some of the world’s poorest nations – Bangladesh, Afghanistan and tsunami-hit Thailand – have offered the United States aid and expertise to deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

While some of these aid pledges were small compared with the millions of dollars and heavy machinery promised by Europe, they come from nations with far less to give and are symbolic recognition of the role U.S. aid has played in their development.

Bangladesh, one of the world’s poorest countries, where millions of people live on a monsoon- and flood-prone delta, pledged $1 million to Katrina’s victims and offered to send specialist rescuers to inundated areas, the Foreign Ministry said.

The list of countries mentioned in the article: Bangladesh, Thailand, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Honduras, Mexico, Peru, Cuba, Venezuela, & Singapore.
