Earthquake in Haiti

I just read with sorrow the news of the earthquake in Haiti tonight. Haiti has been hit hard by several hurricanes these last few years in addition to dealing with intense poverty and political difficulties.  

Direct Relief International is a non-profit organization that is sending emergency medical supplies. They have an excellent track record of sending medical relief into regions that are badly in need, and they are efficient with donations and volunteers.  I highly recommend them as a place to send donations.

Also, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance has created a fund specifically for Haiti.

Please pray for the people of Haiti. Haiti is the poorest country in our hemisphere, and they are still hurting badly from previous disasters.
