Haiti

The 7.0-magnitude quake in Haiti is now believed to have killed as many as 500,000 people, or over 5% of the nation’s population. Here are some quick links.

The US Department of State issued the following statement:

“Anyone wishing to donate or provide assistance in Haiti following the devastating earthquake that struck near Port au Prince on Jan 12, 2010, is asked to contact the Center for International Disaster Information. The Center, operated under a grant from the United States Agency for International Development’s Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance and initial support from IBM, has become a valuable resource to the public, as well as US government agencies, foreign embassies and international corporations. CIDI has established a dedicated page to coordinate Haiti support at:

If you have loved ones in Haiti, the State Department has set up an info line. That number is 1-888-407-4747. You can also direct people to the US Embassy website in Port- Au-
Prince for information:
http://haiti.usembassy.gov/service/e...y-contact.html

Here is a Peter Rothberg article with a good overview of what’s needed most and a number of links for reputable relief donation funds.

Here is a set of sound recommendations for relief from the TransAfrica Forum.

Here is an article about the historic link between Haiti and the United States.
