Quake in Haiti devastates - help needed

 According to the Associated Press

A powerful earthquake struck Haiti's capital on Tuesday, January 12, 2010 with withering force, toppling everything from simple shacks to the ornate National Palace. The dead and injured lay in the streets even as strong aftershocks rippled through the impoverished Caribbean country.

Many gravely injured people sat in the streets early Wednesday, pleading for doctors. With almost no emergency services to speak of, the surivors had few other options.

President Barack Obama ordered U.S. officials to start preparing in case humanitarian assistance was needed.

We as a Sacred Heart Community can help our president, and our country aid this developing country cope with the tragic destruction this earthquake has brought. "The American Red Cross has pledged an initial $200,000 to assist communities impacted by today‚Äôs earthquake in Haiti, and is prepared to take further action as local responders assess the situation."
