On the 12 January 2010, a massive 7.0 magnitude earthquake devasted Haiti just ten miles from the capital city of Port-au-Prince. More than ever UHUK is mobilizing to help as many people as possible in Haiti.
An update on actions taken by UHUK:
* we have been working around the clock to find out information about relatives and friends in the area and share information within the Haitian community in the UK
* working to locate a warehouse to store materials donated
* identify a shipping company that will enable us to send out clothing, shoes, medical supplies, and school materials to as many affected areas as possible
* organizing fundraisers to occur in the local community. Please check Events section for further details
* liaising with community organizations who are keen to partner with us to support Haiti
* keeping the media informed of recent developments with family and friends in Haiti
* responding to queries from the Haitian community and the British public who want to support relief efforts in Haiti
We welcome donations from any of the items listed above and/or financial support.
