BloggersUnite for Haiti


March 1st 2010 is the day that Bloggers Unite in support of the people of Haiti. Here we are focussing on the work of an NGO called Lemonaid (http://www.lemonaid.org.uk/).

LemonAid was born out of a desire to see targetted support, investment and relief delivered to the desperately poor people of Lagonave, Haiti as the result of a visit to the island in January 2007.

During the trip, some words of a great friend came to mind;

"I was hungry and you fed me. I was thirsty and you gave me a drink. I was homeless and you gave me a room. I was shivering and you gave me clothes. I was sick and you stopped to visit. I was in prison and you came to me."

...and so in 2008, LemonAid was born.

Watch the video for some more info:
