Join us for a live telephone briefing with Gillian Dunn, IRC's Director of Emergency Response, who has been leading our efforts to deliver critical aid in Port-au-Prince since the days immediately following the earthquake.
You will also hear from IRC child protection experts Sarah Smith and Rebecca Chandler, who are helping launch healing and recreational programs for Haitian children and bringing to bear IRC's expertise in reuniting separated children with their families.
You will have the opportunity to ask our guests questions during the call.
The Briefing will provide an in depth look into how the IRC is working to meet the immediate needs of vulnerable children and to safeguard the rights of women, who face an increased threat of sexual and physical violence in the aftermath of disasters.
Our speakers are experts in humanitarian relief, and I can attest that their eyewitness accounts of life on the ground in Haiti will give you a new perspective on both the challenges and opportunities the country faces.
