Our hearts and thoughts go out to the people of Haiti as they endure the disaster that has hit their nation.
The symbol on the badge above is recognised the world over as one of the Red Cross Association. As countries across the globe rush to assist the Haiti region in their time of need, organisations such as the Red Cross leap into action (Haiti’s local Red Cross headquarters has sustained significant damage.)
The Australian Red Cross was formed in 1914 and have been vital in responding to some of Australia’s most devastating earthquakes, such as Newcastle in 1989.
May the power of humanity help those in need in Haiti in the coming months, our thoughts are with them.
