As soon as the earthquake struck Haiti on January 12, the Red Cross was there, distributing aid to those in need. In the first two months, the global Red Cross network collectively has reached more than 1.9 million people with food, water, relief supplies, medical services, sanitation and shelter.  Here is an example of the response the Red Cross has received from the Haitian people in reaction to the aid they’re receiving:

"We had nothing before. The Red Cross is helping us to overcome a terrible situation."

- Earthquake Survivor Beatrice Jean-Baptiste of Peggyville,  Haiti

While you may never meet Beatrice or other earthquake survivors in person, know that because of your support, you are there with them, making a difference.  For updates on the American Red Cross response to the Haiti earthquakes, please visit:: redcross.org/haiti.
