“We can take great pride in the fact that our country has stepped forward to provide one of the three largest military contingents to Haiti”

The Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) has donated $50,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to help with relief efforts and help the people of Haiti.

TREB has a long history of donating at home and abroad when disaster strikes. Last year alone, it presented Realtors Care Foundation grants totaling $171,000 to 20 local shelter-related charities, including relief efforts to help victims of an earthquake in China and those struck by a cyclone in Burma in 2008.

“We can take great pride in the fact that our country has stepped forward to provide one of the three largest military contingents to Haiti,” says TREB in a news release. “There is certainly much work to be done: the international airport’s traffic control tower was severely damaged, as were hospitals and prisons, to name only a fraction of the affected infrastructure.

“For those of us fortunate to live in prosperous nations, this devastation underscores the importance of emergency preparedness on an individual level. Those living in Haiti however, were at a tremendous disadvantage with regard to facing such a cataclysmic event.  Even prior to the earthquake, more than two million people in Haiti were homeless, and shortages of potable water and fuel were the norm. With this degree of poverty and no building codes in existence, it is unlikely that the people of Haiti would have been in a position to withstand a disaster of any magnitude.”
