The Red Cross is contributing an initial $1 million from the International Response Fund to support the relief operation, and Red Cross’s warehouse in Panama to provide tarps, mosquito nets and cooking sets for approximately 5,000 families.
In addition to the Red Cross staff already in Haiti, six disaster management specialists are being deployed to the earthquake disaster zone to help coordinate relief efforts. Right now, the American Red Cross is only deploying volunteers specially trained to manage international emergency operations but that is will change.
Then check with your church or other local emergency help groups.
