Haiti Earthquake Update – Emergency Relief and What you can do
Zanmi Lakay is committed to supporting street children in Haiti. The situation is devastating. We work with extremely marginalized youth and their circumstances are now more dire than ever. Guy and I and Susan Bradley have already made plans and purchased tickets to be in Haiti January 26-February 18th, and we’ve decided we are still going although our priorities have changed.
We are bringing in donations of Care Bags, sneakers, medical supplies, and other general living needs, and asking for your help in the form of tax-deductible donations. If we bring in more goods, then contributed money will go to pay airline luggage fees and we would rather spend that money in Haiti on food, medical assistance, living expenses, and any other immediate needs.
You can donate by PayPal through our website, blog, Donor Tools, or by check to Zanmi Lakay, 153 Montecito Avenue, Pacifica, CA 94044.
Guy and I would like to thank all of you for your thoughtful calls, emails, messages, and charitable gifts and know that we are doing whatever we can to contribute to the efforts to help the people of Haiti. We are prepared to do whatever we can once we get there. Also, our Haitian family is safe, and at this writing we are still waiting to hear from the many groups of children we work with.
Thank you all for your help and support.
Jennifer and Guy Pantaléon
