WYCLEF PROVIDES ASSISTANCE TO HAITI

In INTERNATIONAL NEWS, THE PEOPLE'S NEWS, THE WORLD on September 12, 2008 at UTC.22.30.

More than 600,000 Haitians were displaced and cut off from water, electricity, and food supplies. The southwetern portion of the island nation was hardest hit, a city called Gonaives. Wyclef Jean & President Rene Preval have asked the International community for help.

According to reports Wyclef Jean’s “Haiti Storm Relief Fund” will provide tents, blankets, medical supplies, hygiene kits and money to the non-profits responding to the emergency. Thus far, the Pan American Development Foundation and the World Food Programme, plans to ship additional containers with emergency supplies into the country over the next few weeks.

“My country is facing a serious catastrophe at the moment,” Jean said in a statement. “And we urgently require assistance.”

“Without restoring our forests we will always be susceptible to mudslides and flash floods from storms and hurricanes,” he said.

The Yele Haiti Movement was established by Wyclef Jean to provide humanitarian assistance to haitian nationals in the time of national crises. HIs group has already begun sending in relief equipment for those hardest hit from Hurricane Faye, Gustav, & Ike.
