World Progress Report Seeks to Cover Humanitarian Aid Efforts in Haiti.

Boca Raton, FL, April 24, 2010 --( They often strike fast and without warning. Death and destruction are left in their wake. Within seconds, buildings collapse, homes are destroyed and lives are shattered. Earthquakes are one of the world's most terrifying natural disasters. Nowhere is this more apparent than the country of Haiti.

According to the United Press International, "An estimated 230,000 people died because of the magnitude-7 quake that struck Haiti, wrecking Port-au-Prince and injuring tens of thousands of others and leaving about 1.3 million without shelter. The plight of the survivors, many of whom are huddled in make-shift tent cities outside the capital, continues to be the focus for relief agencies." Efforts to help rebuild and bring hope to this tiny nation continue to pour in from organizations around the globe.

World Progress Report recognizes that humanitarian aid is a much needed and essential part of the rebuilding process. Without it, people affected by natural disasters would struggle to survive. The World Progress Report seeks to educate the public on organizations and foundations focused on helping those in need. American organizations, or organizations that work with any kind of foreign aid, are invited to be a part of this Public Television series. "We want to bring to light the efforts really helping to impact people's lives. We want viewers to know that people who are struggling are not forgotten and that they are not alone," said the Executive Producer of the series.

People need to become aware of the relief efforts taking place around the world, so that they will have the ability to take action. World Progress report wants to empower people to reach out and help. Through this Public Television series, World Progress Report hopes to raise awareness on these and other important issues surrounding humanitarian aid organizations.
