Ontario residents contribute nearly $3 million to World Vision Haitian relief
fund

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 18 /CNW/ - Generous Ontarians have so far contributed nearly $2,951,333 in their contribution to World Vision's efforts to support the victims of the devastating earthquake in Haiti.

Donors in Ontario sponsor 3,617 children in Haiti through World Vision. Staff in Haiti are working around the clock to ensure the safety of these children.

"We are honored and amazed by the generosity of Ontarians," said World Vision Canada's Director of Specialized Marketing, Caroline Riseboro. "The money raised goes a long way to help children and their families in Haiti find food, shelter, medicine and safety in a time when all of those things have been taken away from them."

Across Canada, World Vision has raised more than $6.14 million in its relief efforts for Haiti. World Vision seeks to raise $10 million to help the millions of people who have been affected by this disaster.
