For those concerned to locate family and friends affected by the earthquake in Haiti, two helps are being recommended by the Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD), in which Brethren Disaster Ministries participates: The International Committee of the Red Cross has opened a family/friends unification website allowing both those in Haiti and those outside Haiti to list their contact information in hopes of being reunited with friends or family affected by the earthquake. Go to www.familylinks.icrc.org/WFL_HTI.NSF/DocIndex/locate_eng?opendocument. In addition, the US State Department has help line for family reunification, call the State Department Operations Center Helpline at 888-407-4747.
