It will be some time before anyone knows the extent of the devastation in Haiti from yesterday's earthquake. The prediction right now is that there will be thousands of deaths.
It is clear that a lot of help will be needed in this island nation in the Caribbean, which has long been impoverished. If you are wondering how to help and able to do so, please take a look at this blog listing 6 easy and direct ways to send your help to Haiti right now. Some of these organizations were familiar to me, and others I am glad to learn about. I am particularly inspired by Partners in Health, run by Paul Farmer, which provides culturally sensitive, empowering, direct and truly effective healthcare to people in Haiti and other countries.
