A Rights-Based Response

Aid has begin flowing into southern Haiti just and the news about the devastation Hurricane Matthew left behind has begun trickling out. The official death toll will rise.  We will have a clearer picture of the needs over the course of the next week. We must start planning our response. The Haiti Advocacy Working Group published eight best practices to guide us. We can use them guide donations, just search for organizations who follow them, and we can use them to improve existing efforts.

Share these with any anyone who is interested in working in Haiti. If you don’t know how to follow one of the guidelines, contact HAWG from the link on their homepage.  Build a rights-based culture in the groups you support as you work to help Haitians recover.
