« Haiti Solidarity »
By Thierry Dime Bolla
The whole world is looking towards Haiti because of the terrible tragedy that has happened in the country and the numerous victims after the violent earthquake which took place on January 12. The epicenter of the quake, with an intensity of 7.3 on the Richter scale, was located near Port-au-Prince claiming thousands of victims among the population.
As reported by all medias, the earthquake has destroyed all infrastructures, including power supplies, depriving Port-au-Prince, capital of the country, and its nearly 2 milllion inhabitants from electricity making it almost impossible to transport injured people to hospitals still standing.
Several days after the earthquake, the people of Port-au-Prince still lack access to everything. International aid is coming from everywhere to help Haitian people. Education Without Borders would like to help as well, and has decided to raise funds. All funds collected will be fully dédicated to our project « Haiti: Solidarity. »
We do not want to compete with big organizations already present, but this tragedy needs any help it can get, big or small and this is the reason why we want to participate.
The funds collected will be completely used for the project « Haiti Solidarity». One of our coordinators Claurène Chappuis, whose mother is Haitian, knows the country well and will be able to help us decide on what to do in the most judicious ways.
