Haiti Earthquake Relief: Resources and how to help

Haiti Chief Says Thousands May Be Dead

"All of the hospitals are packed with people. It is a catastrophe."
-- President Rene' Pre'val of Haiti

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today issued an urgent call to the international community to assist Haiti following yesterday's catastrophic earthquake that has devastated the impoverished Caribbean nation's capital.

Buildings and infrastructure in Port-au-Prince suffered extensive damage, while basic services, including water and electricity are near the brink of collapse. The full extent of casualties, is still unknown, Mr. Ban told reporters in New York.

"There is no doubt that we are facing a major humanitarian emergency and that a major relief effort will be required," he said.

Expressing gratitude to nations rushing aid to the earthquake's victims, he called for the world to "come to Haiti's aid in this hour of need."

The UN, he said, is also mobilizing an emergency response team to help coordinate humanitarian relief efforts and is expected to be on the ground shortly.
