Several members of ICAR's student community, as well as their famililes and loved ones, are feeling the direct impact of this tragedy.  Whatever support we can give to the people of Haiti and our colleagues who are suffering is urgently needed.

This need will persist far beyond the immediate humanitarian crisis and recovery will require sustained attention from the International Community.

We ask you to find a way to help by contributing to a fund established to assist ICAR Community members as well as consulting the list of relief organizations listed below.  It is very important to distribute these resources to your networks as well.
