Help the Victims in Haiti

As you are all aware Haiti has had a bad time with nature. The new year (January 12 2010 to be precise) witnessed a 7.0 earthquake that struck 10 miles south of Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince. This has created wide-spread devastation including loss of life, property and has left many with severe medical problems and also homeless.

It has been estimated that at least 2.5 to 3 million people are affected by the Earthquake. The earthquake also triggered a series of mudslides, collapsed many buildings, and also knocked out power and communications lines. If you are interested to help even a small amount such as $10 will go a long way in helping those in need.

International Medical Corps is a global, humanitarian, nonprofit organization, founded by volunteer doctors and nurses and dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through relief and development programs. Their team is treating crush injuries, trauma, substantial wound care, shock and other critical cases with the few available supplies - And they're in it for the long haul.
