A magnitude 8.8 earthquake struck central and south Chile  on Saturday. Since then, there have been over 90 aftershocks. Thankfully the death toll was much MUCH smaller than the one that struck Haiti about 6 weeks ago – due in part to the eathquake “consciousness” in Chile, as well as the epicenter being offshore.


It is estimated that over 2 million people are affected by this disaster. People need food, clean water, shelter…
