Haiti in Crisis: Emily Sanson-Réjouis to speak in Wellington
New Zealander Emily Sanson-Réjouis, whose husband Emmanuel and daughters Kofie-Jade (5) and Zenzie (3) were killed in the Haiti earthquake, is participating in a public event on 12 December organised by The Latin America Solidarity Committee (LAC) and Estadio, in response to the critical situation in Haiti.

The event will be held in the Salon Cubano at Estadio, Blair Street, 1-2pm, Sunday 12 December. Entry is free.

Emily Sanson-Réjouis will talk about the critical situation in Haiti, and the Kenbe La Foundation she has founded in commemoration of her husband and children. Its initial focus is on helping to rebuild and restock the ‘Source of Hope School’ which was destroyed in the disaster.

Other speakers will include H.E. José Luis Robaina, Cuban Ambassador to New Zealand, who will speak on the work of Cuban doctors and nurses in addressing the cholera epidemic, and CARITAS New Zealand, who will talk about their projects, and the situation prevailing during a recent trip.

Members of the public are urged to come along and hear eye-witness accounts of the reality of Haiti, and get some practical ideas on how they can help mitigate this humanitarian disaster on this, the 11-month anniversary of the earthquake.

Where: Salon Cubano, ESTADIO, Blair Street, Wellington
When: Sunday 12 December 2010
Time: 1-2pm
Entry: Free, although donations to projects welcomed.
