Haiti: The World to the Recue (part 2)
Issued on: Modified:
The earthquake in Haiti caused tens of thousands of deaths and injuries. From the very beginning, the international community reacted by sending help to the population, devastated by the catastrophe. From China to the USA, from France to Venezuela, heads of State have called for support. And so have stars like George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Wyclef Jean.
Tonight, we focus on NGOs’ humanitarian help and how they manage on the ground. Has the 2004 Tsunami lesson been learnt?
