I like to personally check out an organization before contributing - and since I live near the WCDO headquarters and have seen firsthand how hard they work to limit overhead and maximize the amount of funds getting out to clients around the world - this is an eyewitness vote of confidence in them. When visiting in Africa I spent time at their regional headquarters and met staff from around the world that work for the organization. Several friends of mine are in the field working for WCDO and I have been impressed by the cultural sensitivity they bring to their work, and their amazing energy. WCDO has had staff in Haiti for many years and can "put to work" the money you donate, and do so today.
