Haiti needs help

If you give a helping hand to someone in need, he'll remember you for the rest of the life and you cannot match his blessings with any divine power. Haiti needs you, and me telling you to "go help them" (of course in whatever capacity you can) will do not as much good as your inner desire to really help them. Just have a look at the devastation. Generations lost, dreams shattered of people like you and me. If you feel like helping, and I know you will because you are a good soul, International Medical Corps (IMC) has provided a platform for you.

About IMC
International Medical Corps is a global, humanitarian, nonprofit organization, founded by volunteer doctors and nurses and dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through relief and development programs. Our emergency response team is in Haiti responding in force. There are still thousands of patients seeking treatment of which approximately 80% are in need of surgery and are running out of time - especially with the tremendous aftershocks still devastating this country. The team is treating crush injuries, trauma, substantial wound care, shock and other critical cases with the few available supplies - And they're in it for the long haul.
