Haitian emergency

No photos, not local, no apology.

Haiti in general and Port-au-Prince in particular have a major humanitarian crisis due the the earthquake yesterday.

There may be little we can do to help directly but there are organisations who are in a position to help if we can contribute even small amounts of money.  There is the appeal from SOS villages to help orphans there. I am no lover of big organisations but the Disasters Emergency Committee can help co-ordinate efforts and funds.

On a more local basis Shelterbox provides vital assistance in many such disasters so contributions here will always help someone in similar circumstances in the future. The chances are that your problems are relatively small compared with the people of Haiti – thanks for reading.
