My thoughts are with the people of Haiti who are now suffering with the aftermath of a devastating earthquake. Reports coming out of the region are of devastation of the capital, Port-au-Prince. Death tolls are on the rise.
The entire infrastructure of Haiti’s fragile government is in ruins. The parliament building has collapsed, as have schools and hospitals. UN officials have been killed, and the Catholic Church is reporting the death of priests.
The most urgent need is for money to supply the organizations on the ground doing the aid work with the supplies that they need. There are many ways to channel money. AJWS has a good track record of getting money to the right places in earlier disaster situations. It is where I will be giving my donations.
