The Situation in Haiti: How You Can Help

Nicholas Ohotin, who oversees the Fund for Assistance (FFA) for our Synod of Bishops, reports:
ROCOR donors have collected over $50,000 and more donations are coming in daily.
We hereby remind our faithful and other potential donors that every dollar allocated by donors to a specific project goes to that particular cause. This has been the trademark distinction of the FFA since its inception. A donor could designate funds for a particular church, monk or nun and they would be sent. FFA overall expenses are kept to a minimum and are funded out of general contributions. The ROCOR provides the office and equipment. We remind all of you of this history and renew our pledge to you that your contribution to Haiti will go fully to Haiti. Please feel free to contact us by email or at 917-817-2925 with any further questions.
Our efforts are being coordinated with the IOCC outreach to Haiti, as well.

Please take a moment and consider what you might be able to give to help our Orthodox brothers and sisters, and all those in need, at this time of crisis in Haiti.
