Jersey Disaster Appeal launched

20 January 2010

Islanders are being encouraged to help victims of the Haiti earthquake by supporting a local appeal.

The Bailiff, Michael Birt, announced the launch of the 'Jersey Disaster Appeal' in response to the public interest in delivering aid to the victims of the earthquake, which hit the Caribbean community on 12 January 2010.

Announcing the appeal, the Bailiff said “What has happened in Haiti is clearly a human tragedy on a massive scale and as a fellow island community, Jersey will be keen to show its support to those who so desperately need emergency supplies, be it in the form of essential medicine, clean drinking water, food or shelter.

"I hope that by establishing a public disaster appeal fund, Islanders will feel better able to make their contribution count, in the knowledge that the funds raised will collectively be put to work to achieve the highest possible benefit for the people of Haiti in their hour of need.”

Supporting the appeal, the Dean of Jersey, Robert Key, said  “With Christmas fresh in our minds and its message of God’s generous giving to us, we should encourage each other to do all that we can to rescue, restore and rebuild the lives of our brother and sister islanders the other side of the world.”

How to donate to the appeal

You can donate to the Jersey Disaster Appeal by cash, cheque or credit / debit card into a dedicated bank account, held by HSBC (sort code: 40-25-34, account number: 91663933, IBAN: GB80MIDL40253491663933).
