Women's Issues
January 12, 2010


Ambassador Verveer and the staff of S/GWI were greatly saddened to learn of the deaths of human rights champions Myriam Merlet, Magalie Marcelin and Anne Marie Coriolan, in the Jan. 12 earthquake in Haiti. We join other parts of the State Department, the U.S. Government, and the international community in supporting the world's rescue and relief efforts. Please commemorate the lives and achievements of these extraordinary and courageous women by contributing to the relief effort today. You can text "HAITI" to "90999" to donate $10 from your cell phone, or contact the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund with your larger donation.
