partners in health : supporting haiti

For over twenty years, Partners in Health (PIH) have been working Haiti to provide the country's poor citizens with access to health care for free. It is a remarkable organization and they are poised to provide tremendous assistance in the wake of this disaster. I learned about PIH by reading Tracy Kidder's life-changing book, Mountains Beyond Mountains.

I encourage you to learn about PIH and to join me in making a donation to help them as they tackle this crisis on the ground in Haiti. Their mission statement is below:

The PIH Vision: Whatever it takes At its root, our mission is both medical and moral. It is based on solidarity, rather than charity alone. When a person in Peru, or Siberia, or rural Haiti falls ill, PIH uses all of the means at our disposal to make them well—from pressuring drug manufacturers, to lobbying policy makers, to providing medical care and social services. Whatever it takes. Just as we would do if a member of our own family—or we ourselves—were ill.
