On finding ways to help Haiti, here is what my friend Rachel says about Partners in Health:
Partners In Health ... is another excellent organization based in Haiti, with an infrastructure already set up and ready to deal with the crisis ... PIH is an organization in Boston/Cambridge that has worked in Haiti for decades. It was co-founded in 1987 by Paul Farmer, medical anthropologist and MD who has worked tirelessly with others to alleviate suffering at the grass roots level and to bring attention to the global, structural problems that create these conditions of local suffering.
