Haiti authorities estimated 200,000 dead and 1.5 million homeless in the quake-ravaged heart of this tragic land, where injured survivors still died in the streets, doctors pleaded for help.
The world pledged more money, food, medicine and police. Some 2,000 U.S. Marines steamed into nearby waters. And ex-president Bill Clinton, special U.N. envoy, flew in to offer support. Six days after the earthquake struck, search teams still pulled buried survivors from the ruins.
Albanian people in US, from Albania and Kosovo are shown extraordinary compassion, donating, to Haiti, despite tough economic times.
I have personally witnessed the tremendous generosity and goodwill of the Albanian people and of my friends around the world to help in times of great need. There is no greater rallying cry for our common humanity than witnessing our friends in distress. And, like any good friend, we Albanian people have an obligation and desire to come to their aid.
The people of Haiti now need assistance more than ever. Thank you Albanian brothers and sisters for helping and we hope you will donate more to this worthwhile cause.
Albanian Minerals in NY a sister company of Bytyci company in Tropoje Albania, owned by Albanian family in NY have donated 100,000 dollars. We hope world will donate more to Haiti.
