Lemon Aid in Haiti (updated)Date: Sunday, 24th Jan 2010
Jimmy Dowds is in Haiti with Lemon Aid to help the survivors of the earthquake. They need your help. Lemon Aid was set up by his son Justin to deliver relief in Haiti.
LemonAid was born out of a desire to see targetted support, investment and relief delivered to the desperately poor people of Lagonave, Haiti as the result of a visit to the island in January 2007.
