The Crisis in Haiti – What can I do?

 

The devastating earthquake in Haiti has affected 3 million of our brothers and sisters. With the death toll now estimated at 200,000, the 7.0 earthquake has left in it’s wake the worst devastation witnessed in many years. Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world. They need as much of our support as we can provide.

The spirit of being there for each other in times of crisis keeps the human torch aflame irrespective of our nationality.
