Support Relief for Haiti

I have worked with IFCO / Pastors for Peace. As a matter of fact, these are the folks that sent me to Cuba to study medicine. So if you are looking for a legit organization that does good work and will put your efforts to good use, look no further…

Dear friend of IFCO/Pastors for Peace,

In response to the devastating earthquake in Haiti, IFCO/Pastors for Peace is supporting Haitian Women for Haitian Refugees (HWHR), Lakou New York, and Movement of Dominican Haitian Women (MUDHA) in rapidly delivering humanitarian aid to the people of Haiti.

IFCO encourages people to generously give money and supplies at this time of grave human crisis. All of the above organizations have a powerful record of work in Haiti. IFCO is proud to serve as fiscal sponsor for each of these projects and can attest to their excellent work. HWHR travels frequently to Haiti, has been involved in training
community health workers in coordination with the Cuban doctors and ELAM graduates who serve the communities in greatest need. We can be assured that all donations will directly reach those most affected.

See below for more information about what supplies are needed, and drop-off location in New York City.

To make a financial contribution to the urgent efforts, please send a tax-deductible donation to:

IFCO/Haiti Relief
418 West 145th Street, New York NY 10031

You may also make a credit card donation designated for Haiti Relief by calling IFCO at 212-926-5757
