Haiti Foundation Against Poverty Launches New Fundraising Drive to Help Victims of Earthquake
Date:1/14/2010

Haiti Foundation Against Poverty launches online initiative to raise money to help victims of the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti yesterday.

(PRWEB) January 14, 2010 -- The Haiti Foundation Against Poverty has launched a broad online fundraising and awareness campaign to highlight the urgent need that the Haitian people have for medical care, housing, and other basic necessities. The organization’s executive director, Mallery Thurlow, has been in touch with her contacts in Haiti. “I received a phone call from Haiti just after the earthquake and all I could hear in the background was people screaming in pain.” Ms. Thurlow went on to comment that the loss of life cannot be described.

As part of Haiti Foundation Against Poverty’s mission, they are hoping to raise $225,000 to ship and assemble a prefabricated, insulated, metal building to be used as a medical facility. In addition, the orphanage they sponsor has suffered terrible damage and must be rebuilt. Ms. Thurlow is on her way to Haiti today to help in the relief efforts. She encourages everyone to track her progress via her twitter feed at twitter.com/haitifoundation.

Ms. Thurlow would like to encourage anyone who would like to help go to their website, HaitiFoundation.com, to make a tax-deductible donation.
