"Pray for the people of Haiti please..........I cannot stress enough what a human disaster this is, and idle hands will only make this tragedy worse. The over two million people in Port-au-Prince tonight face catastrophe alone. We must act now........President Obama has already said that the US stands ready to assist the Haitian people. The US military is the only group trained and prepared to offer that assistance immediately. They must do so as soon as possible. The international community must also rise to the occasion and help the Haitian people in every way possible." Wyclef Jean

We send our message of sympathy and support to the people of Haiti at this most difficult of times......Where men, women and children are suffering under the heaviest of burdens, that place must, for that moment, become the centre of our world’s attention, the world’s compassion and the world’s humanitarian help.” Prime Minister Gordon Brown
