As you all probably already know, a big earthquake hit Haiti and it is feared that the death toll could reach as high as 200,000. Relief efforts are being swamped and riots are breaking out as the country is quickly spiraling towards chaos and anarchy. If you are interested in helping out the many victims and approximately 3 million people who are in need of assistance, here are some ways to make sure your generous donations go to those who need it.

Other places to donate:

Action Against Hunger - ACF International has mobilized an emergency response following the earthquake that devastated the city of Port-au-Prince. ACF teams on the ground have begun to carry out rapid evaluations across the city, while additional support, equipment, and materials — including water treatment supplies, emergency vehicles, and communications equipment — are en route from ACF’s bases in Gonaives.

ActionAid - ActionAid asks for donations for its relief efforts. ActionAid has been working in Haiti since 1996 and is deploying an emergency team to deliver clean water, shelter and goods like blankets and soap.

American Red Cross - The American Red Cross has pledged an initial $200,000 to assist communities impacted by the earthquake in Haiti, and is prepared to take further action as local responders assess the situation.

CARE - CARE donations will go to deliver emergency aid to victims of the impoverished nation's capital city.

The Salvation Army - The international Salvation Army is responding in an amazing way. We now have commitments of more than US$500,000 through various territories and International Emergency Services. Please pray for our teams arriving in Haiti and for strength and grace as they set up the command and distribution centres.
