Helping Haiti

Posted by at 9:56 am in News | Permalink

Haiti By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard about the devastating earthquakes in Haiti. After the 7.0 quake last Tuesday, the airwaves have been flooded with scenes of flattened buildings, homeless families, and crying children. But there have also been scenes of hope. And even through numerous aftershocks — including a 6.1 quake yesterday morning — we’ve witnessed seemingly impossible rescues and joyful reunions.

These are the stories that relief workers focus on to keep them going strong, both in Haiti and in the U.S. And theirs are the stories that Scholastic Kid Reporters around the country bring to you this week.

Across the nation, Kid Reporters have been talking with folks doing their part for the relief effort.

For the full articles, information on how you can help, and continuing coverage of the crisis in Haiti, visit the Scholastic Kids Press Corps special report.

    The Haiti earthquakes were devastating and really sad, but it’s good to know they’re getting help. That picture of the little boy really gives me some hope for them. He’s so cute! :) I’m praying for everyone in Haiti!
