Supporting Emergency Relief Efforts in Haiti

January 19, 2010

Dear CCEDNet Members and Friends,

Like people the world over, we at the Canadian CED Network are overwhelmed by the magnitude of the catastrophe that has struck Haiti. Tens of thousands of lives have been lost, while many more remain missing, or are without food and shelter.

The Centre for International Studies and Cooperation (CÉCI), a Canadian CED Network member, has been active in Haiti for nearly 40 years and is one of the largest Canadian NGOs on the ground there. CECI and all its teams have been active since the moments after the disaster and they are working with a solid network of local partners, which greatly facilitates humanitarian operations. CÉCI’s teams are currently mobilized to bring first-aid, food and water supplies to meet the emergency needs.

You can follow the activities of CÉCI’s teams here:
