A 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck near Port-au-Prince, Haiti, earlier today. Your help is desperately needed to bring immediate emergency relief to those affected.
The earthquake struck shortly before 5 p.m. EST Tuesday near the capital of Port-au-Prince. Aftershocks with magnitudes in excess of 5.0 soon followed, intensifying the damage and catastrophe.
Already the poorest country in our hemisphere, Haiti and the population of its capital city have been thoroughly devastated by this unimaginable tragedy. Homes, buildings and bridges have collapsed; a hospital has crumbled; and people are wailing in the streets.
The people of Haiti have never needed your help more urgently. Please, do whatever you can to help.
