Bloggers Unite for Haiti

The small nation of Haiti has been hit with a catastrophic earthquake and needs help. You can help support Doctors without Borders which has been working in the country for a long time and has ramped up efforts to help the survivors of the damage.

I have added a widget at the right side of this page which links to the Doctors without Borders organization. This is how they describe themselves; "Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971.

Today, MSF provides aid in nearly 60 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters. MSF provides independent, impartial assistance to those most in need. MSF reserves the right to speak out to bring attention to neglected crises, to challenge inadequacies or abuse of the aid system, and to advocate for improved medical treatments and protocols."

It is sad that the Caribbean island, the poorest country in the western hemisphere, continues to suffer so much.
