Haiti

If you are like me, you are completely heartbroken by the recent disaster in Haiti.

You are probably hearing requests for donations from every direction, as well. But if you still are looking for a place where your contribution is really going to mean a lot, please check out Partners in Health. They have been providing health care clinics to the poor in Haiti for a long time, they already have doctors on the ground there and (of course) they have been overwhelmed by dire need for assistance this week.

On a more personal note, I have a friend who works for PIH, who is at a clinic in Nepal but is working tirelessly to try to help coordinate the response in Haiti by email and phone. He asked me to please pass along this information to anyone I could!

  1. Thank you, Amy. Any information we can receive that is legitimate we want to have and we want to share.

    I hope everyone will be extremely careful about where they put their hard earned dollars. There are so many scam organizations that have popped up since this tragedy, it is rather scary.
