How to Donate to the Haiti Disaster Victims

The Haiti earthquake death toll is predicted to reach 200,000.

International aid has begun to reach Port-au-Prince: the Red Cross said a convoy of trucks carrying a "huge amount" of aid from the Dominican Republic was due to arrive in the capital, bringing a 50-bed field hospital, surgical teams and an emergency telecommunications unit.

There's no fuel and people are hunting for water. It's difficult to put the scale of destruction into words.

There are several ways to help and donate the Haiti disaster victims.
