Pan American Relief site to be promoted by MTV Networks Latin America

WASHINGTON, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The more than 70 million online Brazilians may donate to Haiti relief efforts using a new Portuguese website called www.AjudaPanamericana.org, the Pan American Development Foundation and the Organization of American States announced.

AjudaPanamericana.org is the third language option offered by the non-profit PADF as it accepts donations to help Haitian survivors of the 7.0 earthquake.

"Since Brazil is the fifth most populous nation in the world and one of the leaders in overall Internet usage, AjudaPanamericana.org is an important channel for relief donations," says John Sanbrailo, PADF's Executive Director.

PADF – a non-profit organization that also serves as the OAS's natural disaster relief arm – has worked in Haiti for 30 years on economic development, protecting human rights and responding to natural disasters. Prior to the quake, PADF had more than 150 people in Haiti.

MTV Networks Latin America will promote this initiative through its on-air and on-line network.

In addition to www.AjudaPanamericana.org, donations may be made in English in the United States at (877) 572-4484; online in English at www.PanAmericanRelief.org and in Spanish at www.AyudaPanamericana.org
