Wyclef Speaks On The Haiti Earthquake Relief

Wyclef Jean shares some very important News for Haitians on Earthquake. Important news on how to, and where to help the people of Haiti who are suffering from a recent earthquake.

And here is Wyclef’s official statement, from last night:

“Haiti today faced a natural disaster of unprecedented proportion, an earthquake unlike anything the country has ever experienced. The magnitude 7.0 earthquake – and several very strong aftershocks – struck only 10 miles from Port-au-Prince.

I cannot stress enough what a human disaster this is, and idle hands will only make this tragedy worse. The over 2 million people in Port-au-Prince tonight face catastrophe alone. We must act now.

President Obama has already said that the U.S. stands ready to assist’ the Haitian people. The U.S. 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.”

Many people have already reached out to see what they can do right now. We are asking those interested to please do one of two things: Either you can use your cell phone to text “Yele” to 501501, which will automatically donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund (it will be charged to your cell phone bill), or you can visit Yele.org and click on DONATE.”

If you are in America & seeking information about relatives in Haiti, you can contact the US State Department at 888-407-4747. Donations can be sent to Konbit Pou Edikasyon or the Yéle Haiti Foundation. You can also text “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10 to Red Cross, or text “YELE” to 501501 to donate $5 to Yele Haiti and all proceeds will go toward earthquake relief (it will be charged to your cell phone bill).
