Rugby star backs Haiti appeal

Munster and Ireland second row forward Donncha O’Callaghan has appealed for Irish people to help the the children of Haiti by providing aid to Unicef as a matter of urgency. The country was hit by an earthquake measuring seven on the Richter scale and after-shocks of up to 4.5 magnitude last Tuesday.

The quake centred on the capital Port-au-Prince. All the city’s hospitals were destroyed or abandoned because they were unsafe. Aid groups have set up makeshift hospitals on roadsides. The death toll could reach 200,000 with a further one million people left homeless and threatened by disease.
