Statement to the press by the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Haiti Mr. Peter de Clercq

Geneva, 17 December 2013 I have come here today to speak about Haiti. Unfortunately, over the last four years, there have been too many reasons drawing attention of the United Nations and the International Community to this small Caribbean country: the 2010 devastating earthquake; the cholera outbreak that followed in October that year; the passage of Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
But today, I come with a different message.
