On Tuesday, the poorest country in the western hemisphere was hit head-on by an enormous earthquake.
I’m sure you’ve seen the heart-wrenching images of Haiti. The full impact of the earthquake is still emerging, but it’s clear that hundreds of thousands of people have either been killed or left homeless.
It’s essential that this small nation gets the help it needs as quickly as possible.
Britain is an incredibly compassionate and generous nation. We showed that five years ago when the British public raised £350m in the wake of the Boxing Day Tsunami, and I’ve no doubt we will show it again.
The best way for you to help, if you haven’t already, is to donate directly to the Disaster Emergency Committee. Whether you can afford to give £5 or £500, it all makes a difference.
Call 0370 60 60 900 or visit the DEC website now to make your contribution.
In the meantime, I know our thoughts and prayers are with all those people who have suffered so much in that country over the last few days.
