It was immediately obvious that Tuesday’s quake in Haiti would be an appalling natural disaster. This was a large tremor centred on an impoverished country with little recent experience or preparedness for such a major event of this kind. The buildings in the quake zones of major industrialised nations sit on damping systems that allow them to ride out tremors that not only shake them back and forth but also twist them in the same movement.
Hundreds, if not thousands, are feared dead.
Baptists are on the ground in Haiti, working even now to assist those many in need.
You can donate now to aid the Haitians. I hope you’ll help if you can. And pray.
