If you want to help the earthquake-ravaged Haitians you can contribute to the following organizations online

Partners in Health

The Harvard-affiliated Partners in Health, that has provided medical services to poor Haitians for over twenty years, is giving medical assistance  to those affected by the Earthquake and is seeking donations.

They also are seeking  volunteer help from medical professionals.

RN Response Network

More than 1,500 registered nurses from across the U.S. have responded to the call by the nation's largest organization of registered nurses for volunteers to provide assistance to residents of earthquake devastated Haiti --leading the RNs to now issue an urgent appeal for the public to support these efforts with donations of funds to support travel costs and medical supplies on their upcoming emergency nursing mission.

Details are still being worked out, but those able to support the efforts of these nurses can get involved via: to sign up to volunteer or donate:

-.NationalNurses on twitter or by following: #haitiRN

-Call the RNRN hotline: 1-800-578-8225

-Support the RNRN/NNU disaster relief effort in Haiti by sending checks :
 c/o  California Nurses Foundation, 2000 Franklin St., Oakland, CA 94612.
Charitable contributions will be used to pay for travel/related costs and medical supplies for volunteer RNs on their emergency nursing mission in Haiti.
