Washington Appeals For Haiti Safe House Help

Actress KERRY WASHINGTON is helping struggling mums cope with the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake through her V-Day charity.
The Last King of Scotland star is on the board of the foundation which offers sanctuary to abused and desperate mothers, and she has helped set up a "safe house" for those in need of a place to sleep following Tuesday's (12Jan10) 7.0-magnitude quake.
She says, "We have a safe house in Haiti for women who are survivors of domestic violence."
The actress is appealing for people to donate to her charity of choice, so struggling mums, women and girls can get the attention they need amid the chaos in Haiti.
She adds, "Our president just asked (George) Bush and (Bill) Clinton to come together for a fund."
