EU aid in Haiti: aid getting through and statements

53 views

As dawn broke on 18 January 2010, on the seventh day since the earthquake in Haiti, there were finally signs that the promised aid was getting through on the streets of Port-au-Prince. Still, bodies lied unburied. The homeless gathered in makeshift camps with no water or sanitation. Water, food and fuel were still scarce. Doctors were still working round the clock to treat the injured, with limited supplies and equipment. Many hospitals had been destroyed or damaged – those remaining were stretched to breaking point. And yet the UN and police were strengthening their presence on the street. And aid was arriving and reaching those in need: the European Union alone had committed over 11 million euro to projects, with more to come.
