Wyclef Jean: Haiti is Like the 'Apocalypse'
Wyclef Jean is in Port-au-Prince, helping his fellow Haitians clear the streets of dead bodies from a scene he describes as "the apocalypse."
"We spent the day picking up dead bodies, all day that's what we did," Jean tells FOX News. "The count is not 100,000 -- there's at least, has to be four to five hundred thousand people that is about to die."
Jean's Yele Haiti Foundation has long aided the impoverished country, and has raised more than $1 million in earthquake relief so far. Wyclef says to save his country, Haiti nees to raise a million dollars a day.
"We have to raise a million dollars a day. In four or five days, this whole country is going to be in chaos. We are calling for a state of emergency."
Wyclef has turned to his fans for help.
"Many people have already reached out to see what they can do right now. We are asking those interested to please do one of two things: Either you can use your cell phone to text "Yele" to 501501, which will automatically donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund (it will be charged to your cell phone bill), or you can visit www.Yele.org and click on DONATE."
