Message from the Chairperson
As Chairperson I have the great privilege of working with extraordinarily dedicated Council members and staff throughout the organisation. The commitment to working with the poorest people in the developing world and fulfilling our mission is very evident throughout the organisation.
As we mark the passing of a third year since a 7.0-magnitude earthquake shredded Haiti’s capital city of Port-au-Prince and the surrounding areas, it is fitting to take a look back, and a look forward. On January 12, 2010, Haiti was a country already handicapped by crippling poverty and poor infrastructure, and the human and economic toll of the earthquake was immense. It is stunning to remember that an estimated 230,000 people were killed and another 1.5 million were left homeless.
Tropical storm Isaac hit Haiti on Saturday. Concern Worldwide’s teams are working hard to assess the damage and help the people affected.
Fortunately, we were given notice about the storm 36 hours before it struck. This allowed us to pass information to communities, even in remote rural locations where there is no telephone coverage. Many people were relocated to safer buildings such as schools, where they were better able to weather the storm.
