Help me raise money for Mercy Corps' response to the Haiti Earthquake.
A 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck near Haiti's capital of Port-au-Prince Tuesday afternoon, collapsing buildings, including at least one hospital. Tens of thousands are feared dead in the largest quake to strike the impoverished Caribbean nation in 200 years. Power is out, telecommunications are spotty and food and water are reportedly growing scarce.
Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, is plagued by hunger and political instability. This disaster will drastically increase the needs of families who had little to lose in the first place.
Numerous organizations are mobilizing to lend a hand in the devastating aftermath of Tuesday's earthquake in Haiti. The first members of a Mercy Corps emergency response team are en route to help survivors. Follow the latest updates at mercycorps.org/haiti.
