Haitian president defends gov't response to quake

Published on 14 April 2010

Standing at the wrecked national palace, President Rene Preval on Monday rejected criticism of his government over legions of his people still being without shelter three months after Haiti's earthquake.(..)The leader of the World Food Program in Haiti, Christian Labon, said the activity is a remarkable contrast to the period immediately following the quake. His agency has returned to distributing food to targeted areas of need, rather than trying to feed almost 2 million people daily as in the days just after the disaster.

 

NB. The WFP leader quoted in this article is not Christian Labon, but Etienne Labande, Head of Programme Section.
