21 January, 2010 - by Maeve McLaughlin

Sinn Féin Human Rights spokesperson MLA Martina Anderson has urged people in Derry and Donegal to support the Irish charity Trócaire in helping getting aid to earthquake-stricken Haiti

Martina Anderson said
“It’s estimated that tens of thousand of people have died in earthquake-stricken Haiti, with thousands more injured who are without food, clean water and shelter. We have all seen the horrific pictures on our TV screens of the devastation that this natural disaster has caused. There is a massive humanitarian operation now taking place to get as much aid to the area.

There are ways people in Derry and Donegal can practically help those vital aid relief efforts by supporting Irish charities such as Trócaire

Trócaire partner Caritas Haiti runs over 200 hospitals and medical centres in Haiti. They are also skilled in the provision of clean water and sanitation which will be crucial in this response.

Trócaire’s work in Haiti has for many years focused on helping communities prepare for natural disasters such as this one.
