For an account of the immediate aftermath of the earthquake from one of our diplomats on the ground, read FSO Gary Rex’s piece, ‘The most terrible disaster movie you can imagine’ from The Journal Star of Nebraska.

If you are considering giving aid to the Haiti relief effort please Don’t Forget the FSN Emergency Relief Fund;

that would help our locally employed staff in the country.
