For those in la Capital (and suburbs)… and elsewhere

13 January 2010

There apparently has been complete devastation in Haiti of the communications system and infrastructure.  The region is not as prone to e earthquakes as Mexico (the last major Haitian quake was in 1940) and very few structures are built to withstand quakes of this magnitude. Among the collapsed buildings are the MUNISTAH — United Nations “Stabilization Mission” (occupation force)  — headquarters.

The Haitian Embassy — Presa Don Martín No. 53, colonia Irrigación, delegación Miguel Hidalgo — is open 24 hours a day to receive bottled water and canned goods.

As soon as I get a number for direct bank deposits, I’ll post that.

For those outside Mexico, a list of international (mostly U.S. based) relief agencies are here.
