Saint Paul, MN (PRWEB) February 18, 2010
Joseph William Hahs, found online at http://www.josephhahs.com/, recently donated funds to help the children in Haiti who were left homeless and without family due to the devastating earthquake that struck the area.
On January 12, 2010, the world was stunned to learn that a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck the small island of Haiti. This was the most severe earthquake to hit the area in over 200 years and almost completely demolished the area, as buildings collapsed and hundreds of thousands of people were killed. Those who were not killed during the quake, or in the days following, were left homeless and in great need of help.
Joseph William Hahs recently donated to World Vision, found online at http://www.worldvision.org/ in an effort to help undo some of the damage that was done by nature’s fury.
“What happened in Haiti could happen anywhere in the world. That’s why it is so important for people who have a little extra to give what they can. Every little amount helps, and the more people continue to give, the faster the residents of Haiti will be able to recover and to resume their former lives,” said Mr. Hahs.
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian charity organization that was started in 1950 in order to help tackle injustice and poverty so that children, their families, and the entire community can reach their full potential.
In Haiti, World Vision has worked to provide earthquake survivors with the basic medical care that they need, through donating Caregiver Kits at the clinics and emergency hospitals that are serving the Haitian people. They have also been donating PUR water packets, food, and other necessary supplies to those who are still living in the beautiful, but devastated, country.
After his effort to donate to the Haitian cause, Joseph William Hahs hopes that others will follow his example and will donate what they can to help the recovering nation.
