The death toll from the Jan 12 earthquake is estimated to be between 100,000 and 200,000. Not to mention the many who survive but are dying slowly in makeshift hospitals all around its capital Port-au-Prince.
Sure, Haiti is far far away from sunny Singapore. And we are probably quite comfortable going on with our lives with just a vague knowledge of the plight of the people there. But if you were to put yourself in their shoes... seeing your partner, child, friend, lying there slowly dying... how would you feel?
That's why I want to blog about this charity concert in aid of the victims of the Haiti, because in some small way, I feel like I can make a difference. And I trust that you will too, when you respond by supporting them.
