Haiti’s earthquake, a cry for help

According to professor Roger Searle from the Earth Sciences Department at Durham University in England seems compared the earthquake’s power with several nuclear bombs. He said the combination of its magnitude and geographical shallowness made it particularly dangerous.

Considering Haiti’s consul general to the U.N., declarations, Felix Augustin, more than 100,000 people were dead. Haiti’s population is about 10 million people and now about 3 million people which means one-third of Haiti’s population were affected by the quake according the Red Cross.

Haiti’s prime minister, Jean-Max Bellerive said: “I hope the people had time to get out. So many buildings, so many neighborhoods totally destroyed, and some neighborhoods we don’t even see people. So I don’t know where those people are.”

They have no electricity, the roads are destroyed, everywhere you look buildings collapsed, no fresh water or food, they are desperate for help. Some people who still had homes refused to go inside, fearing collapse. Scores huddled together in parks and sidewalks, trying to get rest.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta reportedly: “Simply getting through the streets to collect the dead bodies is seemingly an impossible task. There’s hardly any heavy machinery to try and dig through the rubble, people are doing it by hand”.

Haiti’s President declared: “We need medicine. We need medical help in general. Some of the hospitals, they collapsed.” It seems that the presidential palace in Port-au-Prince was in ruins. Haiti’s president, said he did not know where he was going to sleep Wednesday night: “I have plenty of time to look for a bed. But now I am working on how to rescue the people. Sleeping is not the
problem.”

People around the world join their forces to help Haiti’s population. Among these people and organizations we can mention Bill Clinton who said “The most important thing you can do is not to send those supplies, but to send cash”.
Also the United Nations plans to release $10 million in aid immediately, while the World Bank pledged another $100 million on Wednesday afternoon.

President Obama promised a “swift, coordinated and aggressive” response from the United States. Obama said : “The reports and images that we’ve seen of collapsed hospitals, crumbled homes and men and women carrying their injured neighbors through the streets are truly heart-wrenching”.

Singer and Haitian native, Wyclef Jean asked people to help Haitians through his organization called Yéle which means “a cry for freedom.” The purpose of the organization has been, from its inception, to restore pride and hope to the Haitian people through projects that will allow citizens to ultimately help themselves, such as the creation of scholarships, support for the arts, food distribution and emergency relief according the singer

Moreover, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie donated $1 million for the organization’s emergency medical operations in Haiti “Doctors Without Borders”.
The couple said: “We will work closely with our good friend Wyclef Jean to support the humanitarian efforts on the island and help those who have been injured and left without homes and shelter.”

Other stars that made public their donation to Haiti earthquake victims are Oprah Winfrey, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton.
