How you can help Haiti

The International Missions Board has put together several tools to help you pray, give, and even volunteer in Haiti. Here's the information copied from their site:

You can give
  • Haiti Response Fund: 100 percent of your gift will be used for meeting needs of earthquake victims in Haiti.
You can pray
You can volunteer
  • E-mail: E-mail haitiresponse@imb.org. Indicate your name and contact information, what skills you have and when you are available. Southern Baptists interested in donating supplies or offering other assistance also can send an e-mail to this address.
You can mobilize others
  • Videos: Download and show these videos to your church or others who may be able to help:


    • Mark Rutledge, long-time missionary to Haitians, speaks out from Port-au-Prince asking you to pray and give to help earthquake victims.
    • Gordon Fort, IMB vice president for global strategy, asks Southern Baptists to pray and help victims in Haiti in other ways.

Southern Baptist disaster relief assessment teams have arrived in Haiti to plan volunteer deployment.

Disaster relief volunteer efforts will be coordinated among Southern Baptist entities, including Baptist Global Response, North American Mission Board and Baptist state convention disaster relief teams.
