DEVASTATING EARTHQUAKE IN HAITI

A catastrophe has caused the earthquake on Tuesday in Haiti, with incalculable damage, thousands of dead and wounded, many of them still in rubble.
The earthquake had a preliminary magnitude of 7.0 Richter, occurred on Tuesday afternoon and was centered about 22 miles west of Port au Prince, according to the U.S. Geological Service.
It requires the support and solidarity of all countries, transnational corporations, institutions. Our brothers in Haiti required more than ever, our material support.
