On Tuesday 12th January 2010, a catastrophic earthquake measuring 7.0 on the richter scale shook Haiti’s capital Port-au-Prince and other settlements in the region to their core.
An estimated three million people were affected by the quake, many people died, many are missing and thousands of Haitians have been left homeless.
While the aftershocks were felt physically in Haiti, they were also felt around the world.
As Queens’ largest employer of Haitian workers many of our employees were affected. We are dedicating to help relocate the families of our Haitian workers, as well as supporting relief and rebuilding initiatives. Though the spotlight on Haiti may have shifted we’ll continue to support our Haitian-American employees and their families and bring awareness to Haiti’s plight.
We encourage you to donate to The American Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders
