Joplin Tornado: United Arab Emirates pays millions for rebuilding of Missouri town | Mail Online:
After a devastating tornado wreaked havoc on much of Joplin, Missouri in May of 2011 the town found a financial savior in an unlikely source: the United Arab Emirates.
The tornado, which killed 161 people and destroyed six public schools, had left the community in an almost hopeless situation until the UAE reached out through their embassy in Washington.
It's not the first time the UAE has reached out to the United States for charity, as the nation has embarked upon a campaign to provide assistance to the most dire of the areas in the country.
See, not all Arabs are terrorists or have bad intentions.
