CHRISTIAN Aid is organising an Haiti earthquake fundraiser in Exeter Cathedral.
Next Friday night (Jan 22) Nightchurch aims to get as many performers as possible to put on a free scratch concert to raise money for the Haiti emergency appeal.
Christian Aid Regional Co-ordinator Laura McAdam said that in the area in which the Christian Aid offices in Haiti once stood 97% of the buildings have been completely destroyed. The need for water, food and body bags for the many corpses littering the streets is very urgent indeed.
She said: "Our Christian Aid staff on the ground tell us that the survivors sit in the dust and rubble wondering where help might come from and how much more suffering they can take. The population had barely begun to recover from the hurricanes that took so many lives and livelihoods and now this.
