18. Red Cross provides 17 emergency/disaster preparedness docs in Creole (free)

The Red Cross provides its standard emergency and disaster preparedness advice sheets translated into multiple languages. At date of this post, seventeen were available in Haitian Creole at http://www.redcross.org/portal/site/en/menuitem.d229a5f06620c6052b1ecfbf43181aa0/?vgnextoid=a9fc78986407f110VgnVCM10000089f0870aRCRD&vgnextchannel=92d51a53f1c37110VgnVCM1000003481a10aRCRD#haitian. Some appear quite a bit more relevant for language learners wishing to communicate with Haitian Creole speakers in cold climes in the U.S., for example the one on winter storm readiness. Nonetheless, while the content may not always fit the current earthquake context in Haiti, language learners may still find that all of the documents provide practice as a set in reading, understanding, and rehearsing conversation in Haitian Creole.
