Some quick research and it looks like, no, donations by Americans to 
foreign charities are not tax deductible (except some to Canada 
because they have similar regulations).

Most foreign charities that want to collect money from Americans have 
an American charity that basically funnels money out of the country. 
This doesn't help us, though.
