I would definitely have Mission Aviation Fellowship in there as a major player. They have worked in Haiti for 25 years and support many of the above listed organizations, making the work they do easier.

Israel had a huge presence in the relief for Haiti it is surprising that it has gone unnoticed.
“Despite the massive international presence, the Israelis currently have the only fully equipped, fully functioning hospital in Haiti. In its first week of operation, it has already treated thousands of victims of the Port-au-Prince earthquake, and delivered several more children, while IDF search teams have succeeded in rescuing two Haitians from under the destroyed buildings.”
“The two El Al planes which left Ben Gurion Airport last Thursday morning contained the entire equipment of the IDF’s airborne field hospital unit and 221 personnel, including 40 doctors, 24 nurses and 20 paramedics.” The Jewish Chronicle
