How to Help Haiti

  • Posted by on January 19, 2010 in Business
  • One week after the catastophic earthquake that left Haiti in ruins, the world community is converging to help rebuild a country that was barely functioning before the disaster happened. Meanwhile, aid groups on the ground are working to get desperately needed assistance to victims in an environment of chaos.

    By all accounts, it is a dire situation.

    Friday, George Clooney organized and produced a telethon to raise money for Haiti. The figures aren't in yet, but we hear a substantial amount of funds were raised with performances by Modonna, Sting, Jay Z, Beyonce and Justin Timberlake, to name a few; and celebreties like Robert DeNiro,Jennifer Aniston, and Ellen Barkin working the phones.

    We've compiled a by no means exhaustive list of groups working in Haiti to provide food, water, shelter and medical aid to a devastated people. We encourage you to donate,

    • Water.org is working to restore water supplies and sanitation facilities in Haiti. DONATE

    • Red Cross has had the largest humanitarian presence in Haiti since 1994. DONATE

    • The Lambi Fund is a local nonprofit that undertakes a variety of environmental and social programs in the country. DONATE
