Haiti Help, Round Two

I also added a widget for Partners in Health on the side. If you are familiar with the excellent work of Dr. Paul Farmer, then you should be familiar with Partners in Health. Dr. Farmer was, for a short time, the Obama nominee to head up the US Agency for International Development. He would have been an excellent choice, but is definitely doing alot of great work for others in his current capacity.

Paul Farmer’s amazing work in Haiti has been chronicled in Tracy Kidder’s classic Mountains Beyond Mountains . Do you still need to be convinced of this organizations worth? Well also consider that Partners in Health has been on the ground working in Haiti for over 20 years. In a crisis like this, you definitely should consider donating money to organizations that already have an on the ground presence that is robust and respected.
