Help the neighbors

Here’s a list of Haiti relief organizations from Flash. I’ll try to put these in the sidebar, but I don’t have time to do it today.

American Red Cross
Direct Relief International
Medecins sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders)
International Medical Corps
Medical Teams International
Mercy Corps
Operation USA
Save the Children

Haiti is in deep, deep trouble, my friends. Send some money for the people there.

Update: One of Flash’s commenters left a link to a New York Times op ed about another relief organization, this one indigenous to Haiti:

But there are effective aid organizations working in Haiti. At least one has not been crippled by the earthquake. Partners in Health, or in Haitian Creole Zanmi Lasante, has been the largest health care provider in rural Haiti. (I serve on this organization’s development committee.) It operates, in partnership with the Haitian Ministry of Health, some 10 hospitals and clinics, all far from the capital and all still intact. As a result of this calamity, Partners in Health probably just became the largest health care provider still standing in all Haiti.

There are many stories about Creole Zanmi Lasante on the internet, but I can’t find a link to a site for contributions. Anybody have one?
