Supporting Haiti

Posted on January 15, 2010. Filed under: Disaster, Haiti, Public Health, Relief | Tags: , , , |

Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere and is now dealing with one of the worst major catastrophes in its long and rich history. There are 10s of thousands people who were killed in the earthquake and this will increase unless the generous humanitarian effort of the world can find its way to the people of Haiti. This is not a time for us to think about why, who to blame, or who is doing what but a time to demonstrate our humanity. I encourage everyone to find a way to help (e.g., money, time, expertise). I am posting some links below. If you know of other links, let me know and I will update the links. Please forward the list to your friends, family, and colleagues so that they can get involved. Remember that the recovery effort will take time. If you cannot help now, there will be opportunities to help in the future. And, see if you local community needs help. Volunteers may have left for Haiti and some service providers need your help locally. Lastly, see if your local Haitian community can use your expertise. Take care.
