Haiti needs our help. We are all aware of the overwhelming devastation in Haiti. We need to help, to raise some funds. All of us together, a tiny bit at a time can make a difference.
According to Tom Arnold, CEO of Concern Worldwide: “The destruction is profound, you see the devastation everywhere, but you see the depth of this tragedy most in the eyes of the people you meet as they struggle to survive, to respond and to grieve. The task ahead is huge.” Concern Worldwide estimates that its initial response to the emergency will last at least six months. In the coming weeks, Concern Worldwide’s priorities are to: Initiate a cash-for-work cleanup campaign to help victims of the earthquake earn a basic living – Build temporary latrines for 15,000 people – Provide temporary shelter (tents and plastic sheeting) for 25,000 people – Set up 7 outreach nutrition centres in camps for displaced persons, especially children under the age of one.”
“From Sunday, February 21 – Sunday, February 28th, BloggerAid Changing the Face of Famine (BA-CFF) will be launching H2Ope for Haiti, an online raffle to raise funds for Concern Worldwide‘s relief effort in Haiti.”
