Brazil to help Haiti

Postby KarenS » Sat May 27, 2006 8:28 am

RIO DE JANEIRO, May 26 (IPS) - Brazil has expressed its staunch support for reconstruction in Haiti, signing several agreements with the new democratically elected government of René Préval to contribute to school lunch programmes, the promotion of sports as educational support, the production and use of ethanol fuel produced from sugar cane, and a massive vaccination campaign.

Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim called for greater participation by Latin America and the Caribbean in the reconstruction process in Haiti, where Préval took office on May 14, in order to consolidate democracy and boost development.

Haiti "cannot be, should not be, and is no longer seen as the disowned son of Latin America and the Caribbean," Amorim said at a high-level international conference on Haiti this week in the Brazilian capital, in which representatives of 19 governments and several international bodies took part.
