Please help Haiti now

More than 1,400 Haitians have died from cholera in the past five weeks, and additional medical help is urgently needed:
The real death toll may be closer to 2,000, U.N. officials say. Hundreds of thousands of Haitians are likely to catch the disease, they say, and the epidemic could last a year, complicating an arduous recovery from the January 12 earthquake.
It can be hard to determine the best way to help. I’ve done a little digging and found that GiveWell’s charity rating system is thoroughly researched so it can provide you with a good handle on which charities to support and how to make your dollar stretch as far as possible.
Please remember Haiti now, and help if you can.
PS: This Sunday is the Haitian general election.
