The stories about Haiti that break his heart -DENVER - Six months after a series of earthquakes devastated Haiti, Rich Harris is appalled by what he's seen.
The Harris family had the opportunity to ?thank Governor Bill Ritter for his great ?efforts on behalf of the orphans in Haiti. ?We truly appreciate all that the Governor ?and his administration accomplished for ?the kids! ?
On March 25th, 2010, the Colorado House and Senate both unanimously passed a resolution calling on the citizens of the State of Colorado to support charities supporting Haiti, including The Road to Hope, and imploring the return of the remaining Haiti orphans to American homes to whom they are matched.
It was quite a moving sight to see dozens of Colorado’s top elected representatives once again stand united with the people of Haiti. While we fear that the urgency of our cause is fading in the thoughts of many, today’s public event served as a stark reminder that there are many good people who still deeply care about what is right for our neighbor to the south.
On behalf of our families and The Road to Hope, we extend our deepest gratitude to State Representative Joe Rice and to State Senator Linda Newell who introduced the resolution before their respective chambers. Each of these leaders were incredibly gracious and eloquent in their speeches in support of the resolution, and we feel confident that today made a big difference to the children of Haiti.
A 7.0-magnitude earthquake cripples Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, leaving numerous people dead and injured.
The Road to Hope has immediately shifted efforts to provide emergency relief supplies in response to the devastation in and around Port au Prince. The victims of yesterdays earthquake are in immediate need of clean water, medicines and food supplies. We are accepting cash donations and will make sure the money is used to get these much needed supplies to the people of Haiti. We will continue to update our site with any and all information we have about the victims and the relief efforts.
Thank you for helping the people of Haiti during this tragic time!
Rich and Lisa Harris
Update on the needs in Haiti post-Jan 12th:
According to a study by the Inter-American Development Bank:
At 200,000-250,000 people killed, this disaster claimed more lives as a percentage of a country’s population of any recorded disaster than any other; ?At up to $13.2 billion in estimated damages, it may be the most destructive disaster that a single country has ever experienced; ?• 10 years after the disaster, it is estimated that Haiti’s economic output is likely to be 30% lower than it otherwise would have been.
