Haiti disaster details unfolding

Food For The Poor is responding to the devastation caused by yesterday's deadly earthquake, which hit about 10 miles outside of the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince. The earthquake had a preliminary magnitude of 7.0.

We at Food For The Poor want to relay the following to our donors and to loved ones of those who may be affected:

  • The current number of dead and missing is estimated to between 100,000 and 500,000
  • The entire capital of Port-au-Prince appears damaged or destroyed
  • Hospitals and the Presidential Palace were demolished, and a portion of Food For The Poor’s main office in Port-au-Prince has collapsed
  • Emergency relief is desperately needed

Food For The Poor will continue to do everything we can to reach out to the suffering people of Haiti — and we’ll keep you updated as we learn new information. Thank you for your compassionate support.
