Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty responds to the crisis in Haiti

June 18, 2010

On January 12th our eyes became riveted to the television and our hearts broken as we watched round the clock coverage of the earthquake in Haiti.  At a shocking magnitude of 7.0, the earthquake was one of the worst natural disasters the world has ever seen.  It is estimated that over 100,000 people died, and left 1.5 million homeless and in need of aid.

Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty agents and staff, like others, could not just sit back and watch the devastation but were moved to spring into action.  As a result, we were compelled to send over $1000 in donations to the following relief agencies:

Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971.  Today, MSF provides aid in nearly 60 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, and exclusion from health care or natural disasters.

American Red Cross– as a leader of aid and relief internationally, the American Red Cross dedicated over $1 million to help the devastation in Haiti.  You can text “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross relief for Haiti- charges will be added to your cell phone bill.
