Haiti, And Your Money
When attempting to help the Haitians, it's worth asking some questions about a given relief organization's accountability and established infrastructure on the ground. I can personally vouch for two organizations: the Mennonite Central Committee (my former employer, here) and CBM (my wife's current employer, here). My wife was informed on Friday that the two hospitals CBM has partnered with in Port-au-Prince are both standing, to everyone's astonishment. They are, of course, overwhelmed. If you have been debating where to send your money, please give these groups some consideration.
