Support Haiti Earthquake Relief

The destruction in Haiti has shocked and saddened us all. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Haitian people, the men and women who are working to help them recover from the earthquake that has devastated their nation, and the members of the Harvard community who are anxious for word from friends and loved ones living on the island.

Scenes of such suffering remind us of our own humanity, and our natural reflex is to reach out to help. Healthcare professionals from the Harvard teaching hospitals have already responded to the call for aid. To make it easier for faculty, staff, and students at Harvard to contribute to the relief effort, we have created the list below of organizations that are responding to the crisis in Haiti, as well as groups that support the local Haitian community.

I am confident that many of us at Harvard will join together in responding to this tragedy, offering both our knowledge and our contributions to ease the suffering of the earthquake’s survivors.
