Earthquake in Haiti –children need your help now!
UNICEF and its partners are conducting intensive relief operations in Haiti, in the aftermath of the 12 January 2010 earthquake that devastated Port-au-Prince and other densely populated areas.
Up to two million children are at risk in Haiti right now. Separated from their families. Trapped under rubble. Countless newly orphaned. Desperate. Every moment matters: donate NOW and 100% of every dollar to UNICEF Ukraine will go directly to fund child-saving relief efforts in Haiti.
“As of 24 January UNICEF delivered to Port-au-Prince 10,000 tarpaulins, 4,600 water containers, 5.5 million water purification tablets, 556,000 oral rehydration sachets”, said Yukie Mokuo UNICEF Representative in Ukraine.
These supplies are bringing critical relief to up to 10,000 families. An additional 20,000 families will receive similar supplies momentarily.
“It is still not enough and these two million children are relying completely on international relief. We call for support from Ukrainian community now. We can save these children together”, emphasized Ms. Mokuo.
Children in Haiti have nowhere to go. No homes, no hospitals, no government aid centers. There is literally nothing beyond what we and the rest of the relief community can provide.
Please, help us save more lives. You can make donation:
