Help Children in Haiti
The AAFP Foundation would like your help in meeting the basic needs of the children of Haiti. After the devastating earthquake in January 2010, the people of Haiti still struggle every day, and the children in orphanages and schools survive with next to nothing.
Help the AAFP Foundation improve the lives of these children by giving a monetary donation or donating school supplies (colored pencils, pens, crayons, markers, etc.) and toothbrushes/toothpaste.
