Six Months Later: The Haiti Earthquake

By July 12, 2010

Follow me on:

The media have turned back to the Haiti earthquake now that we are at the six-month anniversary. A lot has happened since the earthquake to take our eyes off that terrible disaster...things like the Gulf oil spill for instance.

But, we should all check back in to see where things stand and how we might be able to continue to help. Here are some excellent articles that have appeared recently (my thanks to Timo Luege at Social Media 4 Good for some of these):

How can you help? These organizations are just a few that are raising money for Haiti. For more, see Charity Navigator's list of top ranked charities working in Haiti:

For another way to see who is doing what in Haiti, I really like the HaitiAidMap from InterAction. I learned about this infographic through a communication from NTEN. I don't pretend to understand this graphic completely, but found that I could check the kind of relief work I might be interested in...say Food...and then click on a pink bubble on the map (I clicked on Port-au-Prince) and find a list of organizations doing that work in that place. You can go deeper and deeper to find more information. Pretty amazing!

The real question which begs international intervention is what is going on with the money destined to Haiti..
this is why Haiti should not be allowed to control the money flow for the people until the poor of Haiti who lost the meagre means have been housed/fed..
this is not happening .. Jean Michelle past GC of Canada should go down there now and start figuring out what is happening…
