Devastation: Haiti Earthquake

A powerful earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale ravaged Haiti and its capital, Port-au-Prince, on Tuesday.  The devastation is unmeasurable.  Most buildings in the capital are unusable.  And important structures such as the Presidential palace and the United Nations headquarters have been destroyed.  Among the dead is the UN mission leader as well as the Archbishop of Haiti.  The number of dead are certain to be in the thousands, and already there are estimates that more than a million people will be homeless, without food and shelter.

There are multiple ways to donate, the easiest being the Red Cross (be patient; the site is being inundated today).

Please donate as you can.

    I pray for those people who have been injured in Haiti. the earthquake in Haiti is one of the word disasters this year. I just hope that they would be able to recover soon.

    My spouse and I are so unhappy viewing all the awful tv news concerning Haiti this last couple of weeks. It truly is tough to sit back and not be able to help. All that we can think of is to contribute to our favorite non profit organizations so that we are able to at the very least provide a little help.

    You do what you can…money does help, though it certainly isn’t as valuable as time and effort. But, we all don’t have the economic freedom to just jump up and go to Haiti. But if millions of people give 10-100 dollars, it can make a significant impact.

    I finally decided to donate for earthquake in Haiti. I suggest that people give to those scarred by this terrible disaster as well.
