The shockingly surreal images coming out of earthquake-stricken Haiti, and the almost unfathomable extent of human suffering, have triggered a massive outreach from people wanting to help the victims of this tragedy.
Never underestimate the depth of human kindness and the desire people have to help those in need – especially during a disaster.
Many want to help and are asking how. Cash donations are the quickest way to lend assistance. Financial gifts will provide immediate relief and also some longer-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need. Earlier this week, an e-mail was sent to medical center staff at Cincinnati Children’s that included web links to some suggested organizations for contributions. They include:
- American Red Cross International Disaster Relief Fund
- Save the Children Foundation
- Doctors Without Borders
If you aren’t able to give money, then offer your thoughts and prayers to the people of Haiti, and all the brave souls who are going there to lend a helping hand.
