Haiti: Mercy Corps

From Mercy Corps:

As you know, Haiti—already one of the poorest countries in the Western hemisphere—was devastated by an earthquake yesterday. Portland-based Mercy Corps is sending an emergency relief team to Port-au-Prince, and we’d like your help in spreading the word.

Mercy Corps has extensive experience responding to earthquakes: Indonesia in 2009, China and Pakistan in 2008, and Peru in 2007. Please help us respond as quickly and effectively to this disaster as we did to those.

For more information about Mercy Corps’ efforts in Haiti, you can check out,, and Our efforts for Haiti have also been mentioned by The Huffington Post (, The New York Times (, The U.S. State Department (, and The Christian Science Monitor (
