help Haiti

When I sat down to try to write something about Haiti, I realised with a sinking heart as further news about social breakdown came through the radio that this is not the time to say anything but: help them. Thank God, the Israel Defense Force Field Hospital has been set up in Poat-au-Prince (click for map), hopefully other countries' will follow soon. For those of us unable to be among the brave souls helping in person, here's some links.

click to go to Haiti's Albert Schweitzer Hospital

click to go to the American Jewish World Service

click to go to the CAFOD appeal

click to go to the Caritas website

click to go to the Disasters Emergency Committee website

click to go to the International Red Cross Website

click to go to the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund


  1. Also, Catholic Relief Services and, as of last week, at least, Mercy Corps had a donor matching others' donations up to $250K.

  2. That's great! I'll try to put banners up when I get back from work.

  3. I thought the celebrity call centre with more than 100 celebritites was a great idea.
