The Red Cross in Haiti

Since its founding in 1881 by visionary leader Clara Barton, the American Red Cross has been the nation's premier emergency response organization. As part of a worldwide movement that offers neutral humanitarian care to the victims of war, the American Red Cross distinguishes itself by also aiding victims of devastating natural disasters. The American Red Cross is helping to rebuild what the earthquake destroyed in Haiti and working with local communities to make them safer and healthier.
