Haiti - 03/2010

Of the 27 earthquakes in the first four months of the year, the most devastating one happened on January 12th near <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010_Haiti_earthquake"><b>Léogâne, Haiti</b></a>, west of Port-au-Prince. The death toll of 230,000 people is staggering.

South of Léogâne, I spent two weeks on the southern coast in <a href="http://tinyurl.com/yd2kanz"><b>Jacmel</b></a>, clearing rubble from a couple of schools alongside <b>Shelters International Disaster Response</b>. You can read my on-the-ground reports <a href="http://tedbeatie.com/blog/tag/haiti/"><b>here</b></a>. It was a humbling and rewarding experience.

I am grateful for the help of <a href="http://www.burnerswithoutborders.org/"><b>Burners Without Borders</b></a> in facilitating my opportunity to help the people of Haiti, and I am especially thankful for the 33 people who donated over $2200 in order to help me get to Haiti, as well as offer a sizable donation that would go towards feeding the Haitian volunteers at Shelters International for a month.
<b>SIDR for Life!</b>
