FAST FACTS

NRB has cleared the way with the FCC for special waivers for non-commercial stations wishing to conduct fundraising campaigns. Go to nrb.org for more information.

Communications in and out of Haiti are almost non-existent right now.

45,000 to 50,000 are reported dead, over 3 million affected.

80% of Haiti’s 9 million residents live in poverty.

Port-au-Prince is home to 2 million people, many of whom live in poorly constructed shanties.

The airport in Port au Prince does not have the capacity or resources to support the number of relief planes entering the country. Samaritan’s Purse had to turn back three planes carrying aid workers and supplies. Franklin Graham said, “We're looking at taking a ship out of Fort Lauderdale (Florida), and putting everything on the ship. It'll take two days to get there, but I'm afraid it's going to take longer to try and go through the airport."


The American Red Cross's efforts to get donations via text messages has raised $5 million for Haiti as of 5:00 PM Thursday. That exceeds the nearly $4 million that was donated to all charities by mobile texts in all of 2009.

The FBI is warning Americans to be wary of appeals to help recovery efforts in Haiti. Use charitynavigator.com to avoid scams.

 
 

Continue Praying

After travel delays due to lack of space at airport, HCJB Global Hands medical team has arrived in Port Au Prince. They will relieve medical workers who have been serving since the earthquake hit on Tuesday.

Dan Woolley, a Compassion International employee who was visiting Haiti has been found alive after being trapped in an elevator shaft. Rescuers are still looking for one of Dan's partners with the group.

Revive Our Hearts team members are continuing with plans made weeks ago to visit the Dominican Republic. They are getting footage of Christ-following women for showing at True Woman conferences in 2010.

“As the after shocks of this quake continue to be felt
across Haiti, our goal is that waves of compassion will
continue to be felt in the days, weeks, months and years
ahead.” --Compassion President Wess Stafford

"Once again a devastating tragedy affords the human race an opportunity to put aside relatively unimportant matters that so easily consume us and focus in a concerted effort on doing whatever is possible to bring help to desperate people and it will offer even more challenges to the Christian church to follow our calling to be lovers of neighbors practically, sacrificially and joyfully. --Stuart Briscoe ("Telling the Truth")
