Help Haitians Help Themselves
What the people of Haiti need most at this critical time is food and water. Because banks are closed and the financial infrastructure is literally in ruins, cash is the only accepted currency.
For what it's worth, I can personally vouch for Haiti Partners / Beyond Borders. My cousin John has lived in Haiti since the mid-90's and the Haiti Partners website can be found here:
John is also posting YouTube updates from Port au Prince a couple times each day.
Whether Haiti Partners or some other charitable organization, please consider making a cash donation to the organization of your choice with an on-the-ground working presence in Haiti.
Thank you Pound Pup for allowing me to post this solicitation. I will understand if you feel it's best to remove this post.
