Hi It is really impressive and great job done by you. It is a prompt response in the wake of supporting relief efforts in HAITI. Organizations and individuals around the word are willing and able to work for Haitians but they were facing lake of information. The fact sheet will help strengthen and uniform the relief efforts that on ground and prospective. Regards, Furqan
