FYI: The best NGO working in Haiti at this time is Doctors Without Borders. In Haiti long before the earthquake, Doctors Without Borders has no political nor ideological axes to grind. It is an organization made up entirely of medical professionals doing exactly one thing — providing medical care to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe.

It has field staff in over 60 countries, including active war zones. Administrative expenses are 1.1% of total expenditures, as compared to 5.9% for the American Red Cross. Nobody is making an obscene salary.

Please give if you can.
