On Tuesday, January 12, 2010, a catastrophic earthquake that hit the heart of Haiti buried more than 70,000 bodies without question. Damaging the infrastructure of the poor country’s major city and leaving miserable casualties, Haiti is suffering from the recent disaster; and is in dire need of care.
Korean-Canadian Leadership Development Committee (KCLDC) would like to be a focal point in gathering our communty to lead and develop a program in hopes of aiding the unfortunate in Haiti. KCLDC is currently running a fundraising project to encourage the youth and young adults in our community make a difference and donate to World Vision to immediately help Haiti.
