Haiti Death Toll: 300,000 Looks Likely

"Haiti death toll could reach 300,000: Preval"
Reuters (February 22, 2010)

"The death toll from last month's devastating earthquake in Haiti could jump to 300,000 people, including the bodies buried under collapsed buildings in the capital, Haitian President Rene Preval said on Sunday...."

From the looks of it, Haiti is going to be an opportunity for the practice of charity for quite a while. The country wasn't in very good condition to begin with, that earthquake killed a terrible fraction of the people, and broke quite a bit of the country's infrastructure. Folks there can use help.

In case you missed it, near the top of this page: A list of charities you've probably heard about already, with links and some contact information: Also a list of posts in this, and two other blogs, about Haiti.
