It's just 12 days after the joyous new year celebration that a 7.0 earthquake struck southern Haiti. It is incredibly shocking because more than 100,000 are dead. Here are some of the topline news and the help we can make for Haiti:
  • The quake affected roughly one in three Haitians -- about 3 million people, the Red Cross estimated.
  • Haitian President Preval: "You have to see it to believe it. Lots of houses destroyed, hospitals, schools, personal homes -- a lot of people in the street, dead."
  • "I cannot live in the palace; I cannot live in my own house," said President Preval. "The two collapsed."
  • "We don't have the capacity to bring all the injured to hospitals." , President Preval.
  • "People are standing around wondering where to go."
  • The hospitals are gone and medical supplies and heavy equipment are desperately needed.
  • Estimated 40,000-45,000 Americans live in Haiti. Conditions of many unknown.
  • "I heard a lot of people praying, saying that Jesus is coming, saying that we need to pray, we need to save our lives by believing in God," witness Carel Pedre tells CNN.
  • The major need is for search and rescue. We have enormous numbers of people trapped under the rubble," United Nations' Undersecretary for Humanitarian Affairs John Holmes told CNN's Christiane Amanpour. He added, "There's a big need for medical teams, medical facilities... "We need to get that on the ground very quickly."
As one of the human beings in this world, I really do think that we should reach out to help millions of lives over there, one way or another. Let's take action now. Either big or small action...it all counts.

Here are the list of official organizations that reach out their help to Haiti. It's one of the many ways we can help the victims.
