A Call for Donations for the Haiti Earthquake Relief

| Post a Comment
I'm just  re-posting here from Arcade Fire's site to spread the news. As we all know, Haiti has been hit with a devastating earthquake that crippled the nation's capital, affecting hundreds and thousands of people across the nation. The band has posted a call for donations in aid of people affected by the quake -

 

"Friends,

Haiti needs your help in her darkest hour.

We just got off the phone with our friends at Partners in Health.

Most of the medical infrastructure in Port-au-Prince is down.
Since Partners in Health's clinics are in situated the surrounding areas and haven't been damaged, they are mobilizing their resources towards
the capital, setting-up field hospitals to treat the injured on the ground.
Also, Paul Farmer (the founder of PIH) is at the UN and has access to the best information on where to direct the money... so for the moment
if you want to help, we suggest sending funds to:

www.pih.org
+
donate.pih.org/page/contribute/haiti_earthquake?source=earthquake&subsource=homepage

Canadian residents with Roger cell phones can text HELP to 1291. 5 $ will be directed to Partners In Health's Haiti emergency fund.

Please be generous as time is of the essence.

love,
Win and Regine"

The band has always been and advocate for raising awareness for Haiti, providing leaflets in support of the non-profit healthcare organisation Partners In Health (PIH) and its Zanmi Lasante healthcare centres during concerts. The band's co-founder Régine Chassagne, has strong ties to the country, her family having emigrated from Haiti to Canada during the Jean-Claude Duvalier dictatorship.
