Mercy Corps and Haiti

Mercy Corps is said to be one of the better charities to donate to to help Haiti.

This is their main web page for Haiti.

They are: “… a team of 3700 professionals helping turn crisis into opportunity for millions around the world. By trade, we are engineers, financial analysts, drivers, community organizers, project managers, public health experts, administrators, social entrepreneurs and logisticians. In spirit, we are activists, optimists, innovators and proud partners of the people we serve. ”

    Partners? WTF?! I thought aid was all about establishing a dependency on outside assistance. Surly, this “partnership” thing is a mistake.

    I will vouch for Mercy Corps, which is headquartered here in Oregon. I have been contributing to them for years, and my company is offering to match employee donations for Haiti Earthquake Relief with an equal amount to Mercy Corps.
