“There are still people under the rubble. The count is not 100,000. There’s has to be at least [400,000] to 500,000 that are about to die.

I’m on the ground. The numbers are high. […] We spent the day picking up dead bodies. That’s all we did.” – Music artist Wyclef Jean talking to Fox News about what he’s seen on the ground in Haiti.

Jean’s organization, Yele is collecting donations for the quake-devastated country. Medecins Sans Frontieres is also on the ground and seeing patients. MSF also has video updates of the situation.

ISN Security Watch republishing partner swissinfo’s parent organization Swiss Broadcasting Corporation swissinfo is accepting donations for Haiti through Swiss Solidarity.

Please consider donating to the organizations listed above or one of your choice.
