Scribd’s Haiti Missing Persons and Response Center

January 19, 2010 • in the news

Following last week’s earthquake in Haiti, Scribd launched a real time “Haiti Missing Persons & Response Center.” Much like CNN’s iReport hub, the Scribd profile helps people share information about missing loved ones, publish personal reactions about the tragedy, and includes a searchable “Missing in Haiti” slideshow that can be embedded across the web and  automatically updates with the latest information.

The International Red Cross’s Scribd profile and Haitian FamilyLinks Database are also great resources for those affected by the disaster.

Update: Two of the people in the Scribd database — Kimberlly Gassart and Aishia Daphne Joseph — have been found alive. We are waiting for more details from their families.
