Haiti Response Coalition
The Haiti Response Coalition began to form only minutes after the news of the earthquake began to spread across the globe. As we desperately tried to reach those in Haiti, we began to plan a rapid response to the crisis. Those of us who had been working in Haiti for years knew instinctively that we had to band together, pooling our resources, our networks, our contacts, our energies and our creativity. Even as our lives became tèt anba (upside down) and the days and nights began to run together, we relentlessly sought to help our Haitian friends, driven by adrenalin and our love for this beleaguered country and its people.
