Tens of thousands of people are injured or dead after a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti on Tuesday. As the world turns its attention to the incalculable devastation and suffering, we take special note of the 200,000 citizens living with HIV/AIDS.

“Just as food, water and shelter are critical human needs for those afflicted by this national tragedy, so are life-saving medications for those living with HIV/ADS,” said Nora Hanna, Executive Director of Until There’s A Cure Foundation. “We want to make sure that all of their critical care needs are met.”

Make your tax-deductible gift now and provide life-saving medications here at UTAC, or donate to any of the following organizations:

* The American Red Cross via their website or text messaging. By texting “HAITI” to “90999”, a $10 donation will be charged to your phone bill.
* Doctors Without Borders
* Partners in Health
* AmeriCares

For other ways to help – including volunteer opportunities – contact the Consulate General of Haiti in New York City at 212-697-9767.

Think of the patients. Think of the children who need healthy, strong parents. You’ll be glad you did.
