A CHARITY has launched an emergency appeal to help people affected following the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti last Saturday.
Christian Aid is behind the international relief efforts on the Caribbean island which is still recovering from the 2010 earthquake that killed 300,000 people and Hurricane Matthew in 2016.
Latest figures of those killed in the disaster surpassed 2,200 while the exact amount remains uncertain and rising daily as the search for survivors continue.
Thousands of homes have been destroyed, roads are cut off due to landslides, power lines and communications have been damaged, leaving behind people’s means to make a living. The Departments South, Grand’Anse, South West and Les Nippes are the worst affected.
