Haiti Earthquake updates
As discussed we will be running our emergency relief programme from the Dominican Republic which has working infrastructure and reasonable road connections into Haiti. Our national office in Haiti is badly damaged but our school buildings and Children's Village in Port au Prince are both useable and will be provide emergency help. Lucía Veloz, our national director in the Dominican Republic managed to arrange a helicopter surveillance trip to look at the state of our facilities yesterday. There was no where safe to land. He sent back the aerial pictures, showing that the Village (the six bungalows laid our with trees) are intact but all the buildings around are damaged. The other pictures have come from Port au Prince.
