[News] Red Cross launches Haiti Earthquake Appeal

13 January 2010

After seeing the news of the devastating earthquake in Haiti I didn’t think it would be long before the Red Cross and other aid organisations would be asking for help. On visiting the Red Cross website I wasn’t wrong:

A devastating earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale struck Haiti on 12 January 2010, killing hundreds and affecting thousands more.

Red Cross volunteers in Haiti are currently assisting the injured and supporting hospitals. The British Red Cross has launched the Haiti Earthquake Appeal to support the relief effort.

The earthquake, which hit the capital Port-au-Prince and other areas of the country, is reported to be the worst quake to strike the country in 200 years. The most affected area is Haiti's West Province with a population of 2.2 million.
