In a statement, he describes the 7.0 earthquake that hit the country yesterday as a tragedy and human disaster, and says the 2 million people in Port-au-Prince are facing the catastrophe alone.
“We must act now,” he urges.
In addition to the U.S. government, he is calling on the international community to help.
Jean says anyone who is interested can text “Yele” to 501501, which will automatically donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund (it will be charged to your cell phone bill), or you can visit www.Yele.org and click on DONATE.
