Urgent Appeal for the People of Haiti

From the Canada Haiti Action Network http://canadahaitiaction.ca/ - January 14, 2010:  Two days ago at 5 pm local time, a powerful magnitude-7 earthquake struck in Haiti. It was centred near the capital city Port-au-Prince and has caused massive destruction. The Canada Haiti Action Network urges Canadians and others around the world to contribute generously to emergency relief.

You can contribute to the Haitian Red Cross through its international partners in the International Red Cross. Contributions are tax deductible. The Canadian Red Cross is at: http://www.redcross.ca/article.asp?id=33900&tid=001. We also encourage contributions to the following organizations. Remember that you must provide a name and return mailing address in order to receive a tax-deductible receipt:


The Zanmi Lasante medical center is located in the remote Central Plateau of Haiti and delivers health care through a network of clinics in that region of the country. It is also an education center that trains and graduates Haitian doctors and other health professionals. It is the culmination of 20 years of work by Dr. Paul Farmer and his Partners in Health. Farmer, a graduate of Harvard University Medical School, currently serves as assistant to former President William Clinton, Special UN Envoy on Haiti. The health center survived the earthquake and is moving rapidly to receive  the injured and dispatch teams to the earthquake zone. See below for how to donate.
