Newfoundlanders and Labradorians have shown they care by contributing to World Vision's efforts to support the victims the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
People from the province have contributed more than $34,215 to relief programs supporting children and families in the earthquake-ravaged Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince.
Newfoundlanders sponsor 64 children in Haiti through World Vision. Staff in Haiti are working around the clock to ensure the safety of these children.
"It's wonderful to see that, in spite of the difficult economic times, Newfoundlanders have rallied together to reach out to those who are desperately in need in Haiti," said World Vision Canada's Director of Specialized Marketing, Caroline Riseboro. "The money raised goes a long way to help children and their families find food, shelter, medicine and safety in a time when all of those things have been taken away from them."
Across Canada, World Vision has raised almost $6.14 million in its relief efforts for Haiti. World Vision seeks to raise $10 million to help the millions of people who have been affected by this disaster.
