Help for Haiti

by at 11:50 am.

A lot of people feel helpless in the face of the terrible disaster in Haiti. If you are contemplating a donation to one or more organizations that are part of the response, I hope you’ll consider an organization I’ve come to know, the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation. They have facilities on the ground and while some of their bigger facilities were not affected, being further out, all of the country’s remaining hospitals are being overrun with patients fleeing the city and looking for care. They also have facilities needing to be rebuilt as well. They are well positioned to deliver needed care now, as well as on into the future, to continue their work to build and rebuild infrastructure that Haiti sorely needed before the earthquake, and now is desperate for.

They are also blogging their experience on the ground as best they can.

Other organizations that I recommend as well are Oxfam, and Doctors without Borders. Both groups get stellar marks for the amount of your dollar that actually goes directly to aid.
