Haiti and Chile Earthquakes

Statement By UNICEF Executive Director Veneman on the Earthquake in Haiti

NEW YORK--(ENEWSPF)--13 January 2010 - We are saddened to learn of the devastating earthquake in Haiti.  While communications are extremely difficult and accurate information is still scarce, it is clear that the consequences are severe and many children are among the victims.  Our hearts go out to the families whose lives have been so terribly impacted by this tragedy.

Early news reports indicate that schools have collapsed, homes destroyed, and hospitals overwhelmed by the large numbers of injured coming in for medical assistance.

UNICEF is deploying necessary supplies to Jacmel and Port-au-Prince . . .
