As most of you already know, this past Tuesday a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti outside of Port-a-Prince. Tens of thousands of people have been killed and Haiti’s infrastructure has been devastated. This, in a country already suffering from extreme poverty.
AWB is actively engaging in discussions to identify opportunities to assist in a coordinated disaster recovery effort. We will post updates to the website as more information becomes available – www.awb-seattle.org.
While AWB-Seattle is not a first responder in the event of disaster, instead focussing our work on long term recovery efforts, we hope to support those now involved in the response effort. At this point, cash donations are the most effective way to do this and we hope you will consider making a contribution.
Below is a list of organizations you can contribute to:
- Habitat for Humanity
- Architecture for Humanity
- The American Red Cross
- World Vision
- Doctors Without Borders
- Mercy Corps
For updated information on the situation and additional information on how you can help you can check the following websites:
In coming weeks AWB-Seattle will be organizing an effort to help Haiti rebuild and recover from this catastrophe. We will keep you posted as we progress. Please check for updates on our website.
