A sign of hope in compassion - and the Haitian tragedy

I received an email from the Tony Blair Faith Foundation today from which I quote regarding the relief efforts in Haiti:

"At the forefront of this effort are the co-ordinated efforts of faith based organisations such as World Vision, Christian Aid, Tear Fund, CAFOD and Islamic Relief. It is heartening to see religious divides ignored as a dynamic Muslim organisation like Islamic Relief puts every effort into supporting a population that predominately practice Christianity and traditional Haitian Vodou. This is multi-faith action at its most powerful, compassion as the shared value of all."

Heartening indeed!
