Comic Relief supporting the relief effort in Haiti20th January 2010
Comic Relief has been moved and saddened by the devastation and horror caused by the earthquake in Haiti.
Comic Relief cash has been hard at work for many years now, helping to tackle the poverty faced by some of the world’s poorest people. With this natural disaster being one of the worst to hit a population in decades, Comic Relief is making a donation to support the efforts of the Disasters Emergency Committee to help the people most affected by this catastrophe. This will include money raised for Comic Relief through this week’s Celebrity Big Brother phone votes. We’re also planning to monitor the situation in Haiti and make an additional donation to the crisis from Sport Relief cash, which launches today, when the money from this year’s campaign comes in.
