1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East Donates $1 Million to UNICEF for Haiti Earthquake Emergency Relief
Date:1/25/2010

rgency relief efforts in the areas of water and sanitation, nutrition, child protection and education.  

"On behalf of the children of Haiti, we accept this gift and applaud the efforts of 1199 SEIU," said CEO and President of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF Caryl Stern.  "Knowing that many 1199 members are of Haitian descent and have family members in and around Port-au-Prince makes this contribution and the efforts of the union that much more heartfelt."

Children - which comprise half of Haiti's population - are the organization's number one priority. In the days ahead, UNICEF will focus on providing clean water, medical supplies, temporary shelter, protection and therapeutic food for undernourished children.  Providing access to clean water and sanitation is essential in the immediate aftermath of disasters, to avoid a second wave of deaths caused by diarrheal diseases such as cholera and dysentery.  

Another very important focal point during an emergency is child protection. UNICEF is working to protect unaccompanied children and eventually reunite them with their family. UNICEF will also enable children to return to school throughout the recovery.  

All along the Eastern seaboard, there are tens of thousands of Haitians and Haitian-American members of 1199 SEIU.  In partnership with UNICEF, the union has also launched a special Haiti relief website at www.wecareforhaiti.org as well as a special toll free Haiti relief hotline number at 1-877-875-6561, to help
