Haiti

David Cassuto

What can one say?  Unimaginable suffering on an epic scale unleashed on a population that was already barely surviving.   Please help.  My organization of choice is Doctors Without Borders but there are lots of them out there.  Whatever we can do is what needs to be done.

  1. Do take a look at this:
    http://www.commondreams.org/view/2010/01/14-4

    It talks about how relief becomes a way to push forward neo-colonial reforms against the country’s interests.

  2. From my hometown, Direct Relief International, is also an exemplary humanitarian relief organization, with prior experience in Haiti and elsewhere around the world since 1948.They have an excellent track record and efficiency rating (accdg. to Forbes, 99% or above). You can learn more about them (including their ‘guiding principles’) at their website: http://www.directrelief.org/
