Being a native of south florida I have become very accustomed to Hurricanes spoiling any plans but I have been fortunate enough to tell about it after they come and go. Unfortunately, the case is not the same for many especially those in the Caribbean islands who seem to always get the first sample of these storms. Last weekend was no different as my home country of Haiti was hit by Hurricane Matthew with the death toll ranging from 800-1000 depending on what source you happened to use. What usually occurs in these natural disasters is this rush of aid but I wanted to make sure that the aid was actually going to the right organizations.(I will elaborate later this week why the RedCross isn't one of them) I would like to say thanks to my friends (Santra Denis, Naa-Dei Kotey) as they have taken the hard work out of looking for said organizations, so below please check out one of the many organizations and provide support any which way you can.
