Haitian Relief Ideas
These are two groups that have a long term track record of helping Haitians.
We have personally donated to both these groups in the past and have confidence
that money sent to them is spent wisely.
The Lambi Fund of Haiti
This group specializes in rural community development, especially important now that, according to news reports, over 25% of the residents of Port-au-Prince have fled to the countryside
Doctors without Borders
This tried and true group has brought medical care to victims of
government violence and natural disasters since 1971.
According to a recently passed Act of Congress, donations made to Haiti relief before March 1 can be deducted from your 2009 personal income. Please consult with your tax advisor for details.
