Disaster Relief for Haiti

Post to Twitter

Here are some organizations whose relief efforts are being directed toward women and children in Haiti:

CARE.  In a press release (here), CARE’s director in Haiti said, ”Children were still in school when the earthquake hit, so there are many children trapped. It’s horrifying. ‘The slums on the hills have also completely collapsed. We’ve heard of landslides, with entire communities being wiped out.”

The Global Fund for Women issued a solidarity statement here and is accepting donations to its crisis fund for “women’s peace-building efforts and the re-builidng of their organizations and communities.”

MADRE is providing emergency medical supplies through its local partner Zanmi Lasante.  More details here.
