Haiti in disaster

Troubled events still stand as fear in Haiti as little is being able done to cope with the disastrous quake that has shaken its premises. The airport that stands midway between the rescue operations and the sufferers still stand under partial amendment after being disturbed by the same. Haiti one of the poorest countries in the world stands in ruin as world over people from all strata gather to pull it out.
The two former American presidents in hands with Obama announced the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund to help raise money for Haitians suffering from the devastating earthquake that struck Jan. 12. A Web site to collect donations is at www.clintonbushhaitifund.org.
“At the request of President Obama, we are partnering to help the Haitian people reclaim their country and build back not only their infrastructure but also their unwavering spirit,” a message on the Web site says. “Right now, we must act immediately to save as many lives as possible.”

The site suggests donations ranging from $25 to $1,000 or more. The two ex-presidents said 100 percent of all donations will go toward relief and recovery efforts in Haiti.
Twitter and Facebook have won the game in mass mobilisation with mere 8 million dollars through continuous texting. There has been a follow up of almost 35 million dollars with much more to come through these social community sites.
This is by far the worst quake ever. Haitian President Rene Preval is imploring the international community to better coordinate the massive aid effort for his country and not to squabble over how to provide it.
Preval says it is “an extremely difficult situation. We must keep our cool to do coordination and not to throw accusations at each other.” Preval spoke to The Associated Press on Saturday after a French minister complained that US controllers had turned two French relief flights away from Haiti’s clogged and damaged main airport.
