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. With communications from the area disrupted, the situation is unclear -- but with continued aftershocks and eyewitness accounts of "total disaster" and chaos, there are fears of catastrophic damage and widespread casualties.
Mercy Corps is deploying an emergency response team to help survivors. Follow the latest updates at mercycorps.org/haiti.
