#1607: burnham asks two questions...well, more like eight or nine (fwd)

From: thor burnham <thorald_mb@hotmail.com>

To the list:

1) Given the large number of organizations that currently function in Haiti, 
particularly of the religious ilk, what level of coordination exists between 
them? Is there a single organization, or several, that harmonizes the focus 
of the various organizations? Do NGO's have to register in Haiti, or can 
anyone simply set up a foundation and pursue their version of altruism?  For 
example, does Corbett's own People to People (hope i'm correct) coordinate 
its efforts with a larger organization, or series of organizations, so that 
overlap doesn't occur?
And, if no coordinating organization exists, would it be a good idea to have 
one, or a few? Would they be able to work in conjunction with the Haitian 
government to complement work in progress or target areas such as education? 
Would more coordination be a good, or bad thing?
  I'm counting on the list to disabuse me of the notion that it could be 

2) What are the exact dates for carnival this year?

thanks in advance
