After Haiti, what about Chile?

In light of the overwhelmingly generous response in the Archdiocese of Vancouver to the Haiti earthquake, many people are probably wondering what's happening in regards to Chile following its 8.8 magnitude earthquake on Saturday. The answer is that the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace is already involved. The international development organization is contributing $50,000 for emergency relief efforts as part of the Caritas Internationalis federation, which has already sent a search and rescue team to help look for survivors. More details and donation information can be found here.
