The Haiti Democracy Project is a Washington, D.C.-based think tank. Two of its employees have not been heard from since the quake struck.
James Murrell is the project's director. He says he hasn't been able to contact a board member and an electoral observer, both who were in Port au Prince when the massive earthquake struck.
"We have some of our contacts of friends who live close to the border with the Dominican Republic. I'm pretty sure telephones over there are still working. Some of those who live by the border have Dominican phones as well," says Murrell. "I think I might be able to get through to them later today."
Murrell says while they wait to hear from their employees, the Haiti Democracy Project is working to put people who want to help the quake victims in touch with organizations such as Save the Children.
