Haiti Relief Fund

Following the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti on Tuesday evening, there have been many organisations collecting money, food items, blankets etc to be sent to Haiti.

Is There Not A Cause (ITNAC) has been doing work in Haiti since 2002 and are collecting blankets, bed sheets, and tinned/dry foodstuff to send to Haiti. Their office is located in Jardine's Plaza 96 Charlotte Street, Port of Spain. They also have an account set up at Republic Bank "For This Cause Haiti" account # 510 009 446 802.
You can call their offices at 624-4162/394-2042 and check ITNAC's Facebook Page here, for more information.

Mango Media Caribbean is also doing their part with their "1000 sheets For Haiti Project". They are collecting sheets to be sent to Haiti via INTAC and will be seting up boxes at their offices on Dundonald Street and other locations as well.

The Digicel Haiti Relief Fund is set up to take donations by simply texting the word "HELP" to 5151 (in Trinidad). Each text cost only $3.00 and this will go towards the people of Haiti.
You can check out the Digicel Haiti Relief Fund's Facebook Page here for more information, and texting info for the other islands.

Thanks for the info AC. There are also Government ministries and private organizations that are setting up food/clothing drives to get goods over to Haiti.

We called the Red Cross yesterday and they said that at this point they need $$$ more than clothes/food/books, but the Salvation Army will take them.

Anyone who wishes to help needs only to call around because a lot of organizations are joining in to help Haiti.
