212,000 people are dead, more than 300,000 people are injured. More than 1.2 million people are living in spontaneous settlements after a 7.0 magnitude quake rocked Haiti at 5 p.m on Tuesday 12 January. The earthquake was the most powerful to hit Haiti in more than 200 years. Our partners have been on the ground providing emergency relief since the quake struck and they will continue to help Haitians as they rebuild long into the future.
Act for Peace is accepting gifts to the Haiti Earthquake Appeal and once immediate needs are addressed we will focus on the long term rehabilitation of the affected populations. The scale of the damage is immense and we must make a long-term commitment to our partners to ensure they can rebuild.
