Haiti Update

When recent violence in Port au Prince closed schools and shut down all commerce in the city, AMURTEL set up a Child Friendly Space in our center. Providing children with a safe place to go during the day, it also provided a sense of continuity and took their minds off the rioting and looting just a stones throw away.

As few families were able to find food during this time, Amurtel used the food stores we had set aside for an upcoming conference and arranged hot meals for hundreds of children each day.
