The Earthquake in Haiti — Help through Presbyterian Disaster Assistance.
We have all seen or read reports of the recent tragedy in Haiti. The New York Times reported:
“A magnitude 7.2 earthquake violently shook Haiti on Saturday morning, (8/14/2021) a devastating blow to an impoverished country reeling from a presidential assassination last month and still recovering from a disastrous quake more than 11 years ago.
The quake overwhelmed hospitals, flattened buildings and trapped people under rubble in at least two cities in the western part of the country’s southern peninsula. At least 304 (now, almost 1,300 and about 6,000 injured with Tropical Storm Grace to hit Monday night) people were killed and more than 1,800 injured, according to Jerry Chandler, the director general of the Civil Protection Agency. An untold number were missing.”
