How can we help those affected by the worst earthquake in 200 years?
Most of us are not equipped to be first-responders, but I’m sure most of us would like to help in any way we can.
1. Pray. Everyone can do this, from the very young to the very old, from the very poor to the very rich. Pray for those affected by the earthquake. Pray for the living as well as the dead. Pray for the family members here in America and around the world. Pray for the rescue workers.
2. If you are able, donate money to recognized charities that help with disaster relief. The American Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders are two charities that do good work when disasters strike. Beware of scams that prey on people’s good intentions.
3. Again, if you are able, donate money to charities such as Heifer International. After the first-responders leave the people of Haiti will still need help to rebuild their lives and livelihoods. This is what Heifer International does.
