After the destructive earthquake hit Haiti last Tuesday the Samaritan's Purse deployed relief like a military-trained convoy. According to the Samaritan's Purse official website by Wednesday evening the first cargo plane arrived with supplies. The reports coming out of Haiti has the death count beyond fifty thousand. 

It is no secret that faith-based organizations are filling the gap between the disaster and the arrival of government assisted aid.  Obama has pledged $100 million and US Secretary Hilliary Clinton has vowed to track every dollar to make sure it is working where it is suppose to be. Italy, Brazil, France and many European nations are vowing help. 

Compassion is pouring out from around the world for the Haitian communities. Nashville, Tennessee has a Haitian organization called "Tennessee Haitian Voice" that assists fellow Haitians in settling in the community.  Their website www.haitiforum.com is suggesting United Way and AmeriCares as resources to assist in the disaster relief.
