How to help: International organizations
There are many international organizations doing great work in Haiti. If you’d like to donate to an international organization, here are some possibilites:
Mennonite Central Committee (MCC): MCC is a leader in service and relief work throughout the world. They are highly respected and have a long history of working in Haiti through partnerships with Haitian-run organizations. It was thanks to MCC that I was able to work at RNDDH (above). They are my default organization to give to when a disaster hits.
Lutheran World Federation: They work thoughout the world, and are very active in Haiti.
Catholic Relief Services: Another well respected, international church-based organization.
Partners in Health: If you’ve read Tracy Kidder’s book Mountains Beyond Mountains, then you know about this organization started by Dr. Paul Farmer.
Doctors Without Borders: Be like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and give $1 million to this organization!
The Red Cross: I bet you’ve heard of them.
UNICEF: The branch of the UN focusing specifically on children.
I’m sure I have forgotten many great organizations, but since there are about 10,000 non-profit organizations working in Haiti, I’d better stop here.
