One of our customers is Mercy Corps in Portland, OR. They are a global relief agency helping those in need around the world. During a recent conversation, they described their first hand knowledge of the devastation in Haiti. They are on the ground delivering needed supplies and resources.
Haiti's capital city is said to be "flattened," and officials say the number of dead may top 100,000.
Mercy Corps is deploying a team of relief workers to the island to help meet survivors' most urgent needs -- like shelter, food and clean water. They've responded to dozens of disasters like this in the past, such as earthquakes in Peru in 2007, in Pakistan and China in 2008, and in Padang, Indonesia last year.
ClearCenter began a donation page to Mercy Corps to help with funds for their efforts in Haiti. Please check out the ClearCenter Gives page for more info -- http://www.mercycorps.org/fundraising/clearcentergives -- and please consider making a gift on behalf of their campaign.
Thank you! The ClearCenter Team
