If a natural disaster could be specifically aimed at any one area in which it could do the most damage, Haiti would be the perfect target. It is a country of harsh, long-term poverty and almost non-existent infrastructure.

If you have money to donate to the relief effort in Haiti, please do so.

As always, people should not donate to assist in the Haitian relief effort unless they are familiar with the charitable organization and confident that the money donated will actually reach the targeted area and directly assist those in need.

One such charity that people can donate to to help in this effort is the Mennonite Central Committee. Earmarked donations can be made here with 100% confidence that the money will used efficiently and wisely both in the short term and in the long term.
