We will all have seen the harrowing news reports about the Haiti earthquake, reports of badly injured people being left in hospital grounds to die because there isn't the medical help to treat them, people living out in the open with no access to food or water.
The quicker help can get there, the more lives can be saved in the immediate few days and then there will be a long process of rebuilding and helping the people who have lost everything they have.
The Disasters Emergency Committee launched their Haiti Earthquake appeal at midnight. When the broadcast is available, I'll post it on here. In the meantime, you can call 0370 60 60 900 to make a donation here
