Haiti Earthquake Appeal

Please consider making a donation to the Disasters Emergency Committee Haiti Earthquake Appeal:

The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) was formed in 1963. We are an umbrella organisation for 13 humanitarian aid agencies. At times of overseas emergency, the DEC brings together a unique alliance of the UK's aid, corporate, public and broadcasting sectors to rally the nation's compassion, and ensure that funds raised go to DEC agencies best placed to deliver effective and timely relief to people most in need.

The DEC's remit is to unite agency efforts in times of disaster - such as flood, earthquake or famine - wherever it happens in the world. The
way we at DEC approach our work is to maximise funds raised and ensure they are spent in an effective and fully accountable way.


  1. The British Red Cross is one of the 13 agencies supporting the DEC with Red Cross volunteers currently working to assist the injured survivors of the Haiti earthquake and supporting hospitals struggling to cope with this emergency.
