Every now and then a disaster comes along on an unprecedented scale. The earthquake that hit Haiti on the 12th January 2010, literally crumbled the capital and many surrounding areas – all of which were heavily populated by its people.
The death toll is in its hundreds of thousands, which means ten times that number will now be stricken with grief for the rest of their lives because of the loss of family and friends – including tens of thousands of children who’ll never know what it’s like to be loved by mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters.
Whatever currency – whatever amount – whatever method – we are joining together to help; world leaders, entertainers and social media citizens from all around the world. As the headlines gradually change to other news, it’s now time to reach in and lend a hand to the people and organisations dedicating themselves to helping the Haitians rebuild their lives.
