I’m sure you’ve all seen the shocking pictures from Haiti over the past few days. Haiti was hit by a magnitude 7.0 earthquake on Tuesday, 12 January, destroying much of the capital, Port-au-Prince.
The Red Cross estimates 100-200,000 people have died and up to three million have been affected. Haiti is a poor country anyway, but what little infrastructure they had is now virtually gone.
Haitians feel very alone at the moment. The promise of aid has not yet materialised and many locals are still digging through the rubble with their hands.
Most of the bodies are covered in white bed sheets or rolled inside carpets, but others have been left exposed to the hot sun and the stench of rotting bodies has begun to fill the air.
Families who are desperately searching for their loved ones are gingerly uncovering the sheets that cover the corpses in the hope they can at least identify family members.
The people of Haiti need our help. Taking a lead from Chuck Anderson, James White and others, we’ll be donating 100% of the sales of the Pole Exercise DVDs (DVD 1, DVD 2 or both together) bought from this site for the next week (15 January – 21 January) directly in support of Haiti. So if you buy Pole Exercise DVD 2 for £19.99, we’ll donate £19.99 to the DEC appeal.
“It’s easy to feel separated from things like this based on geography, but it doesn’t mean we’re not all in this together. Every bit counts. My heart goes out to you, Haiti.”
