Help Haiti

With the BBC reporting that the death toll in Haiti could hit 100,000 and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon issuing an urgent call to the international community to assist Haiti, Left Foot Forward sets out how concerned readers can help. As covered on Liberal Conspiracy:

Oxfam has long experience in Haiti, and they are rushing in teams from around the region to respond where they’re needed most. They already have a team in Port-au-Prince and their response will include providing clean water, shelter and sanitation.

UNICEF have issued a statement that “Children are always the most vulnerable population in any natural disaster, and UNICEF is there for them.” UNICEF requests donations for relief for children in Haiti via their Haiti Earthquake Fund.

Medicins san Frontieres are responding to the Earthquake in Haiti with their usual speed and efficiency and any donations would be of a great help.

Mercy Corps are also seeking donations so they can expand their aid efforts in Haiti.

More organisations seeking donations are available here. Please help in whatever way you can.
