Help the Haiti Relief Effort
We all know of the horrific devastation which occurred on the afternoon of January 12, 2010 due to an earthquake, registering 7.0 on the Richter scale, rocking the Caribbean nation of Haiti.
The Chicago Sky is proud to team up with WNBA/NBA Cares in joining forces with our partner UNICEF, who have been on the ground in Haiti since 1949, to help in bringing attention to the crisis and much needed emergency assistance to the victims.
WNBA/NBA Cares is encouraging our fans to donate to the ongoing emergency relief efforts in Haiti and the Caribbean region.
Despite heavy damages to its own offices in Port-au-Prince, UNICEF is ready to provide immediate support to the estimated 3 million victims of the unfolding humanitarian crisis following the earthquake that hit Haiti Tuesday. UNICEF officials estimate that half of those affected by the quake are children.
Funds are urgently needed to provide safe water, temporary shelter systems and essential medical supplies and additional services to the displaced, to aid in relief efforts.
