EuropeanUnion Aid in action - Haiti. For the Commission's Department of Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO), Haiti is the largest operation in Latin America and the Caribbean and in 2010 was the third top recipient of ECHO's aid worldwide (after Pakistan and Sudan).
ECHO's total contribution to Haiti since the earthquake in 2010 has reached €213 million. What are the needs? The focus will continue to be addressing the humanitarian needs still prevalent 3 years after the earthquake: facilitate the return to better service-equipped neighborhoods of more than 350.000 people still displaced and living in camps, and reinforcing Haitian health institutions to enable them to cope with endemic cholera and new outbreaks, ensuring also access to care and with a strong focus on WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) to help prevent the disease. All interventions will have Disaster Risk Reduction components integrated so that all humanitarian projects help decrease the risks in case of a disaster. UNICEF USA Help Children.

Quake-ravaged Haiti faces a long-term emergency, one that will not end in a few weeks when the media frenzy dies down.
And it's clear the crisis will require more radical solutions than short-term relief groups can provide. Will foreign aid to Haiti fail this time? Or will the tragedy bring with it a chance to reboot one of the world's poorest countries -- and rethink the the traditional ways of delivering aid and development? Port-au-Prince may be effectively razed and rebuilt from the ground up, and many other communities will be starting over from scratch. Paradoxically, the disaster may prove to be a unique chance for an architectural and communications reboot of an entire country. That's why we've created this community, Haiti Rewired.

Yesterday, I opined that not enough social media actions aside from donations actually benefit disaster relief or other humanitarian efforts.
However, it seems that at least one organization is helping Web users make their time and clicks count for a good cause, and I've never been happier to eat my words. The Haiti Earthquake Support Center, a project from The Extraordinaires (more on that later), allows users to make possible matches between submitted photos of missing persons and photos of Haitians post-earthquake. It's something facial recognition software should be able to do, but in the absence of suitable technology, perhaps the power of human effort and social media will have some positive effects for those searching for loved ones. The premise of The Extraordinaires is revolutionary but simple.
Organizations can create missions. For this particular mission, photos of missing people are submitted to the site. Tech companies try to help Haiti search, relief. Cchaiti.org Community Coalition Haiti. Cchaiti Community Coalition for Haiti.
