Haitians walk through the destroyed Port-au-Prince cathedral during (church) services on Jan. 12, 2011 Source
"Aid groups say only about 5 percent of the rubble from the quake has been removed and the capital is strewn with 20 million cubic yards (meters) of collapsed concrete and twisted steel debris, enough to fill dump trucks that would encircle half the globe. At least a million displaced people, including 380,000 children, are still in 1,200 tent-and-shack encampments that sprung up after the quake."
My heart is heavy as there is still so much to do out there and I feel helpless to help ...... but I am so grateful to all the wonderful and amazing people I have met on this journey. Thank you to everyone that has made and sent a doll to a child in need in Haiti.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Haitian people today.
