As most of you, I am saddened by the tragedy in Haiti and I wonder how I can help. Which organizations are really going to get relief to those in need? I have given to the Red Cross, I have donated supplies and a tent to a container going over through my church and I still wonder what else I can do? I am including them in my prayers and meditations. Is it enough?
Today I received a request for funds to help support a local surgical team, lead by Dr. Barth Green a neuro surgeon in Miami. They need money and supplies to continue their service in the trenches. I would like to help them and will get more information on how to do that.
Lastly, I met a man Sunday at church that is the director of fund-raising for three orphanages in Haiti. He said there were over 280 children displaced and he is trying to work with immigration to get these children into safe homes. Would I be willing to take in a child?
If you have suggestions or have felt like you are really helping those in need please share your thoughts and your experiences. I am so moved by those risking their life to help, I would like to take a more active role.
Desiring to help more,
