Helping Haiti

General Topics: 

In the face of the recent tragic earthquake in Haiti we have received many requests for information about where people can make contributions of money or time. The TOS has not been directly working in Haiti and so we do not have specific organizations with which we are familiar. Up to this point we have chosen to recommend sending donations to a few accredited organizations (see list below).

The fact of the matter is that even though the Haitian people are faced with overwhelming immediate needs, the process of stabilizing and recovering a measure of their previous living condition will be a long term effort. Right now the compassionate response of millions of people around the world is moving millions of dollars into the accounts of countless organizations. This is the need of the moment. As great as the present need is, there will have to be a sustained effort over some years to bring about a restoration. The TOS is exploring possible partners in Haiti, groups that will be there for the long haul. Please stay tuned to this website for further information.
