American Red Cross

The American Red Cross has partnered with the Haitian Red Cross, which is leading the response efforts. According to the Web sites, donations "will provide immediate relief and long-term 
support through supplies, technical assistance and other support for those in need."

The American Red Cross offers several ways to donate to various funds, including international relief to Haiti.

Those who wish to donate by phone can dial (800) Red cross or 1-800-733-2767. Those who wish to donate by mail can do so by contacting their local Red Cross chapter or by mailing a donation to the following address:

American Red Cross
P.O. Box 37243
Washington D.C. 20013
Mercy Corps

While Mercy Corps does not have a staff in Haiti, the organization does have "extensive experience responding to earthquakes," according to Mercy Corps contributor Randy Martin. The agency started planning a deployment to Haiti Tuesday evening and quickly set up the Haiti Earthquake Fund.

Those who wish to donate by phone can call (888) 256-1900 or donate by mail by sending a check to the follow address:

Mercy Corps
Dept W
P.O. Box 2669
Portland, OR 97208-2669
International Rescue Committee

The IRC is working with overwhelmed local aid groups to provide life-saving medical care, clean water and sanitation to earthquake survivors.

In a blog post on the U.S. State Department Web site, Clinton's Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills called for those wanting to help to donate $10 by texting "HAITI" to "90999." The $10 donation will go automatically to the Red Cross "to help with relief efforts" and will be charged directly to your cell phone bill.

Shortly following the quake's eruption, the U.S. division of UNICEF issued a statement on its blog calling attention to some of the smallest victims of the emergency. "Children are always the most vulnerable population in any natural disaster, and UNICEF is there for them," the statement said.

UNICEF invited people to give by mail by printing out a form on its Web site, which you can find by clicking here. Those interested in donating can also call (800) For Kids or (800) 367-5437.

Food for the Hungry

Food for the Hungry has staff located near the earthquake and in neighboring Dominican Republic, according to the organization's Web site. According to ABC Phoenix affiliate KNXV, 19 people from the organization were in Haiti during the quake.

The site calls on visitors to donate to "help us respond now."

Doctors Without Borders

Doctors Without Borders had teams on the ground in Haiti when the earthquake struck who "witnessed significant damage to its medical facilities, injuries to patients and staff and an influx of wounded toward these hospitals in the capital," according to its Web site.

"MSF [Doctors Without Borders] is deeply concerned for the safety of our patients and staff," the report said. "Additional staff will be deployed to reinforce the existing MSF staff on the ground and to assess the emerging needs from the earthquake in the coming days."

Partners in Health

Partners in Health is an aid organization that has a team in Haiti and aims to provide "a preferential option for the poor in health care," according to its Web site. In a chilling urgent e-mail, which was posted in part on its site, clinical health director Louise Ivers pleaded for help from other colleagues in the area.

"Port-au-Prince is devastated, lots of deaths," the e-mail read. "SOS. SOS ... Temporary field hospital by us at UNDP needs supplies, pain meds, bandages. Please help us."

While that e-mail called for aid from workers in the area, the organization made a more general call to anyone who can help.

World Food Programme

In a press statement, the World Food Programme (WFP) said it will "bring urgently needed food assistance to thousands of people affected by the devastating earthquake" in Haiti. WFP already has stocks of food located in Haiti, and intends to first "distribute nutritious high energy biscuits, which require no cooking" to victims.

In addition, there are plans to airlift 95 tons of food from the WFP's emergency hub in El Salvador. "This will allow us to feed 30,000 people in urgent need for food for up to seven days," the statement said. WFP emergency staff will also be deployed to the country.

Registered Nurse Response Network

A national organization of registered nurses is calling for nurse volunteers to assist residents of earthquake devastated Haiti.

In a statement Tuesday, National Nurses United Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro said the organization is calling on nurses throughout the U.S. to join in this critical effort.

Through the Registered Nurse Response Network, the organization says it hopes to send nurses to provide emergency short term and long term medical support as it has in previous major disasters.
