It has been six months since a devastating 7.0 earthquake rocked Haiti, affecting some three million people. The Red Cross, along with other humanitarian and governmental agencies, has been on the ground since day one, providing food, water, shelter and medical and emotional support.
If a picture is worth a thousand words then a video is worth many, many more. See this video update on the Red Cross response in Haiti, six months later.
About the American Red Cross:
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation’s blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
