Haiti Devastation - How you can help
As part of the international Catholic Federation of aid and development agencies, Caritas Internationalis, CAFOD has pledged an immediate £10,000 to the earthquake relief agency. As we have seen from the News the earthquake has created total devastation in Haiti which is already one of the poorest countries in the world.

Although the death toll is uncertain, it is estimated that some 3 million people were affected by the disaster. There is concern that the country's impoverished economy will leave the people without adequate emergency services.
We should also pray for the people of Haiti and for the many thousands killed who include the Archbishop of Port-au-Prince. If you wish to read more on this then go to http://www.zenit.org/article-28039?l=english
