As you know, an enormous earthquake struck the island of Haiti yesterday. The first relief ships have reported extraordinary destruction.
Susann and I have a friend (an emergency room physician) who spends part of each year providing medical services in Haiti. I emailed her today for recommendations of relief agencies with existing infrastructure on the island.
Her recommendations - all worthy - are below.
The need is urgent beyond belief. Please consider making a generous donation in support of the Haitian people.
