Not on Our Watch– the charity formed by George Clooney, Don Cheadle, Brad Pitt, producer Jerry Weintraub, and David Pressman–has directed $1 million to aid for Haiti.

The money is going to Partners in Health, a group that already has emergency medical efforts underway in Haiti.

PIH is sending 30 surgeons to Haiti, as well as medical supplies.

Not on Our Watch was originally created to help the people of Darfur.
