Warren resident Joni Zweig, president of the aid agency Amurtel left for Haiti this week on January 12. As she left, she sent this plea for help:

 Dear friends,

I am writing to ask people to open their hearts to the people of Haiti. ...<more>

The loss of life, homes and hope is beyond anything these people have ever had to confront. Amurtel has a team on the ground in Port au Prince and we are working around the clock with food distribution and medical care. Any donation you can make will be greatly appreciated and well utilized to help the greatest number of people. As a registered non-profit, all donations are  tax deductible. You can send any assistance to Amurtel, PO Box 232, Warren, VT 05674.


Thanks much,

Joni Zweig

President, Amurtel North America
