All of us at UFE would like to share our deepest condolences with the people of Haiti. Our thoughts are with them and our hope is that the good of this world will shine through such tragedy. There are many individuals and organizations working to help in the wake of this disaster and Grassroots International, among many others, provides a wealth of information on how to be a part of relief efforts in the area.
The International Committee of the Red Cross also has a Family Links website that can aid in restoring communication between family members and loved ones separated in the aftermath of the earthquake.
It is sobering to see the impact of economic inequality around the globe, as is evident in the devastation caused by the earthquake in Haiti. We stand in solidarity with both short-term and long-term relief and rebuilding efforts - may we work together as a global community to ensure that no country is left this vulnerable to natural disaster again.
