Haiti: the need is still urgent

"We're in a race against time, and we can't lose a day," says Anthony Banbury at the U.N. mission in Haiti.

Six-months after a devastating earthquake struck this poor country, untold human suffering continues. And now, when the headlines and news cameras are gone, we call upon our most committed supporters - such as you. http://tinyurl.com/25jf6ob

More than 1.9 million people were made homeless, their livelihoods destroyed. Many families are now forced to live without sanitation in large, mud-filled camp settlements in the midst of crushed buildings.

The injured are recovering in makeshift camps without shelter. With the upcoming hurricane season, each day presents a new challenge – especially for children, many of whom are now orphans without parents to protect them.

Time is of the essence.

Your generous support will help continue to provide urgently needed protection, shelter and basic survival kits to help keep these men, women, and children alive. http://tinyurl.com/25jf6ob

Amid the chaos, UNHCR is working to ensure that human rights are protected, especially for women, children and elderly.
