On January 12th, Haiti was struck by a devastating earthquake. Only three days later, the death tolls were estimated to reach between 50,000 and 100,000. In addition, up to 500,000 are suffering from injuries and lack of access to food, water, and shelter. Haitians desperately need our generosity in order to gain access to necessities and basic health care.
