Haiti's Screams For Help

Just 700 miles off of the Florida coast, our neighbors in Haiti were scrambling on rooftops screaming for help on Tuesday as Tropical Storm Hanna flooded their city. U.N peacekeepers and rescue convoys struggled to reach them in vain.

In the Les Cayes area at least 5000 people have remained in shelters, and floodwaters have forced nursing staff to relocate patients to floors on higher levels. Haitian authorities have advised that Tropical Storm Hanna has taken 23 lives to date.

You can donate money to the victims ravaged by Tropical Storm Hanna and Hurrican Gustav by logging onto Food for the poor.

Thankyou Yobachi, for the intel.
It is a shame this has been so underpublicized.
