Footage Video of People just after the Haiti EarthQuake :
Just across the Caribbean from Central America, Haiti is already the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Now, CNN says the capital city, Port-au-Prince, has been “flattened” by Tuesday’s earthquake. Already, they’ve run out of medical supplies. There’s no food. No water. No electricity.
Here are three ways you can help Haiti right this very second.
Easy: Donate to Partners in Health.
“Currently, our greatest need is financial support. Haiti is facing a crisis worse than it has seen in years, and it is a country that has faced years of crisis, both natural disaster and otherwise… If you are not in a position to make a financial contribution, you can help us raise awareness of the earthquake tragedy. Please alert your friends to the situation and direct them to this webpage for updates and ways to help.”
Easier: Text “HAITI” to “90999” to donate $10 to the Red Cross (This only works with US cell phones).
Easiest: Tweet or blog the above Partners in Health link (https://donate.pih.org/page/contribute/haiti_earthquake?source=earthquake&subsource=homepage) and/or how to donate to the Red Cross via text.
