What's New at MPS-NY:

Helping Haiti

As we keep our brothers and sisters in Haiti in our thoughts and prayers, we must also take this opportunity to serve as advocates for them and their struggle. I know that as active members of your church and other organizations, you are already involved relief efforts.

However, I am asking you to join us in the following efforts below as well.

It is my understanding that President Obama is cautioning us to avoid uncoordinated efforts. We know what could happen when money and goods are given to those who might not have the best interest of the people in need. Therefore, USAID is coordination the US relief efforts.

  1. Visit http://www.whitehouse.gov/HaitiEarthquake to find out the best ways that you can help the people of Haiti. You can also find more ways to help through the Center for International Disaster Information, or through USAID’s interactive Web site, which has a list of NGOs and instructions on how to help.
  2. Donate immediately. You can immediately donate to the Red Cross to assist the relief effort. Contribute online to the Red Cross, or donate $10 to be charged to your cell phone bill by texting "HAITI" to "90999."
  3. Contact your representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate and ask them to support efforts to grant Temporary Protective Status (TPS) to Haitian immigrants living in the United States.For more information, see H.R. 144, the Haitian Protection Act.
