As of today, there are 200,000 known dead in Haiti. Each mass grave covers bodies of 10,000 people. Americans are still missing, and their loved ones are demanding that the US government do more to help find their bodies and bring them home. More than 2 million people have lost their homes; staggering considering that Haiti’s population is almost 10 million. That’s the equivalent of 60 million homeless in the United States. GNI has contacts with dozens of groups and individuals in Haiti. We provide overseas health insurance for “Hopital Albert Schweitzer,” and because they are located in the north they were unaffected by the quake, making them one of the go-to hospitals in Haiti. We desire to help, so GNI has compiled a list of small NGO’s – or non-profit organizations – that work in Haiti. Please consider giving to one or more of these groups. Thank you! And don’t forget, if you plan to go to Haiti, contact us about health and travel insurance plans that include medical evacuation.
