Prayers for Haiti

This is an immense and shocking tragedy, the more so since it appears the Haitian government is so hard-put to handle any relief and recovery efforts. My prayers go out to the people of Haiti, to those who have suffered injuries and lost their homes and members of their families.

I'd like to encourage my readers briefly to give to a suitable charity. One Day's Wages (to which I have given my most recent donation), a Seattle-based charity run by Eugene and Minhee Cho, has set up an emergency relief fund in conjunction with World Concern for the earthquake survivors in Haiti. Dr. Russell Arben Fox has suggested Partners in Health, and the folks at Sadly, No! have recommended Doctors Without Borders.
