Disasters Emergency Appeal raises £23million
Once again people in the UK have shown their generosity toward others misfortune. Individual donations like the one George Osborne MP made at the Knutsford Oxfam Shop all help to raise the kind of money that will help Haiti to recover over the coming weeks and months.
Thousands of people’s lives have been devastated by the earthquake and Oxfam is one of the emergency relief agencies working around the clock to provide essential water and shelter.
“The scale of the disaster is devastating for the people of Haiti and we should all support the Oxfam appeal and others like it. I am delighted that they have already responded with help from this country by sending support teams and equipment, but more aid is urgently needed” said George Osborne
