Haiti: A website to help locate survivors

A website, Survivors of Haiti's earthquake, has just been set up “to help to locate survivors of the earthquake that hit Haiti”, and is available both in French and English. The website allows an easy registering of a missing person (with description and picture), enables safe people to make themselves known, recognize a missing person or convey information. It gives a list of useful links and Twitter feeds dedicated to missing persons posts. French Ministry of foreign affairs and the NGO involved have been requested to feed the website with their data. Over 23.000 people have been registered so far.

    I am trying to find twin girls Melina and Celina Solomon who I hope may have survived the earthquake.


    Has anyone heard from a local pastor named John Marc Desire?
