Please visit http://www.yele.org/ to donate to relief efforts in Haiti. Haiti is the first independent country in Latin America and the first independent black republic. The earthquake, which occurred just two miles from the capital of Port-au-Prince, destroyed the state prison, houses, and hospitals. Concrete dust is strewn over every surface. Hospitals cannot accommodate the injured. Aftershocks were felt over 100 miles away and thousands of people have been displaced. The United Nations and United States have already committed aid. If you are in a position to help, perhaps you should.
