Rotary begins plan of action in Haiti
By Ryan Hyland Rotary International News -- 3 August 2010
More than six months after Haiti sustained a massive earthquake, Rotary clubs and account holders of the Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund are beginning to allocate resources to help rebuild schools, provide prosthetics, and equip thousands with adequate shelter.
Despite assistance from around the world, the situation in Haiti remains bleak. An estimated 1.5 million Haitians still live in tent cities, while billions of dollars in aid from foreign countries has yet to materialize. Debris from 280,000 destroyed homes and buildings clogs the streets of Port-au-Prince.
Rotarians have contributed more than US$2 million to the Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund,
a donor advised fund set up by The Rotary Foundation.
