Disaster Strikes Haiti …

leave a comment »

Much has been written of the Earthquake which struck Haiti during the week . Not only is it one of the poorest countries in the Caribbean, it has now been struck by a force 7 earthquake as well. The epicenter was located only ten kilometers away from the capital city Port Au Prince and has apparently levelled the city. The loss of life is believed to be in the ten’s of thousands and  services are seemingly unable to help people trapped in the rumble ( and this after 3 days, many are now believed to have perished ).  aid seems to be pouring in but doesn’t seem to be getting out to those who need it. It is likely to be some time before Haiti manages to make a recovery from this disaster.
