Additional Earthquake Relief

 

On Tuesday, January 12, Haiti was rocked by an earthquake that struck the area around the capital, Port Au Prince.  The devastation has been widespread as some 1.8 million people live in the area where the highest level of quake intensity was reported.  It's been estimated that at least 1/3 of the countries population has been impacted by the earthquake and early estimates are currently putting the death toll in the thousands.  To add to the problem many hospitals and schools, which are usually the main places where the injured are brought in such disasters, have also been completely destroyed in the quake.  Many countries from around the world are currently responding to provide aid to the Haitian people. 

 

The U.S. State Department Operations Center has set up the following number for Americans seeking information about family members in Haiti: 1-888-407-4747

 

 

Besides your continued prayers, here are a couple of things that you can do to help:
