JAMAICANS continue to rally support for Haiti, offering assistance in cash, kind and service to the millions of people left displaced by last Tuesday's powerful earthquake which killed hundreds of thousands and crumbled the majority of the buildings in Port-au-Prince, the capital.
Jamaicans have, in the past three days, contributed more than $6 million in cash to the Haiti Crisis Fund established by the RJR Communication Group, using account number 822317 at the Cross Roads branch of Scotiabank.
