EARTHQUAKE IN HAITI CAUSED THE DESTRUCTION OF A CITY

THE destruction of a country, Haiti suffered an earthquake of 7 degrees in the Richter scale, mired in poverty and despair, A SHOT OF NATURE destroyed the city of Puerto Principe, Haiti’s capital.

Haiti, the poorest country in Latin America, shaken by an earthquake of 7 degrees on the Richter scale, the 12th of January 2010, faces the pain again, to more dead, more wounded, more poverty.

Moments of anxiety were experienced throughout Haiti, especially its capital, Puerto Principe, that entire neighborhoods were completely destroyed, until the government palace was destroyed, the hotel where they stayed the UN mission to Haiti has gone, much of the employees UN are missing even the head of mission, which the UN logistics in Haiti had prepared, this missing., homes destroyed, whole populations, many people missing, many buried alive in the rubble waiting for someone to rescue the surviving wounded, searching for their family, trying to go to a hospital, where most hospitals also collapsed, sleeping on the street, aided by others as they too suffer the pain of the impact of this earthquake.

Haiti, a country that lives off foreign aid, where corrupt officials for many years, the problems of nature, 4 hurricane that nearly destroyed the island that Haiti was made recently come recostruyendo, reaching this fateful January 12 when the “earth shook,” and misfortune settled back in Haiti.

Now solidarity must be present, all people have to say here we are, up to this country, help their people, and empower them so they can fend for himself, they deserves the Haitian people, their culture , their courage, their faith and their want to achieve a better way to live.

Today I write as a Uruguayan, a Latin American, as a woman who at that time spoke with a Dominican friend and says “the earth trembles,” while CNN on television told me what was happening, the fear they felt by those friends, beloved by all people in that land, I speak as a human being, it was time for solidarity, to think of the other, in thinking that another human being we need to give it all we can think maybe is not much, but a grain of sand, plus a bit more, make the large beach.

God bless the Haitian people and force them for survival against these very tough, so ungrateful, so painful, who are of faith pray for them, send those who are not his strength and energy as they can cooperate maybe in a smaller form among all we can make the difference.

These are addresses where you can communicate to express solidarity, seek recognized organizations, but the crooks are always taking advantage of the pain of others if they have questions Communicate with the embassies of countries from Haiti or who know they are sending aid and cooperation to Haiti or the UN headquarters, BID, or nonprofit organizations like the Red Cross, Caritas, A roof for my country.

Haiti, el pais mas pobre de america latina, sacudido por un fuerte sismo de 7 grados en la escala de ritcher, el dia 12 de enero de 2010, se enfrenta al dolor nuevamente, a mas muertos, a mas heridos, a mas pobreza.

Momentos de zozobra se vivieron en todo Haiti, especialmente en su capital Puerto Principe, que barrios enteros quedaron destruidos totalmente, hasta el palacio de gobierno fue destruido, el hotel donde se alojaba la mision de la ONU para Haiti ha desaparecido, mucho de los empleados de la ONU estan desaparecidos incluso el jefe de mision, con lo cual la logistica que la ONU tenia preparada en Haiti, esta desaparecida., hogares destruidos, poblaciones enteras, mucha gente desaparecida, muchos enterrados vivos entre los escombros esperando que alguien los rescate, los que sobrevivieron heridos, buscando a sus familiares, tratando de ir a un hospital, cuando la mayoria de los hospitales tambien colapsaron, durmiendo en la calle, ayudados por otros que como ellos tambien sufren el dolor del impacto de este terremoto.

Haiti, es un pais que vive de la ayuda extranjera, donde las autoridades corruptas durante muchos anos, los problemas de la propia naturaleza, 4 huracanes que casi destruyen la isla, hicieron que Haiti se viniera recien recostruyendo, y llega este fatidico 12 de enero, cuando la ” tierra temblo ” y la desgracia se asento de nuevo en Haiti.

Ahora la solidaridad tiene que hacerse presente, todos los pueblos tienen que decir aqui estamos, levantar a este pais, ayudar a su gente, y darles las herramientas para que ellos puedan salir adelante por si mismo, se lo merece el pueblo haitiano, su cultura, su valor, su fe y sus ganas de superarse.

Hoy escribo como una uruguaya, como una latinoamericana, como una mujer que en ese momento hablaba con un amigo dominicano y me dice “tiembla la tierra”, al mismo tiempo que la cnn en la television me decia lo que pasaba, el miedo que senti por esos amigos, por toda la gente querida en esa tierra, hablo como ser humano, llego el momento de ser solidarios, de pensar en el otro, en pensar que el otro ser humano nos necesita, a dar eso que todos podemos, talves pensemos que no es mucho, pero un granito de arena, mas un granito de arena, forma la gran playa.

Estos son direcciones donde se puede comunicar para expresar su solidaridad, busquen organizaciones reconocidas, siempre aparecen los sinverguenzas de siempre que se aprovechan del dolor ajeno, si tienen dudas comuniquense con las embajadas de Haiti o de paises que saben que estan mandando ayuda y cooperacion para Haiti o con sedes de la ONU, BID, u organizaciones sin fines de lucro como la Cruz Roja, Caritas, Un techo para mi pais.

Dios bendiga al pueblo haitiano y les de la fuerza para lograr sobrevivir a estos momentos tan duros, tan ingratos, tan dolorosos, quienes son de fe oren por ellos, quienes no lo son manden sus fuerzas y su energia y cuando puedan cooperen talves de la forma mas pequeña hagamos entre todos la diferencia.
