Date:1/19/2010

UN Foundation thanks supporters for generous support of UN relief efforts

Washington, DC (Vocus) January 19, 2010 -- Senator Timothy E. Wirth issued the following statement today in response to the outpouring of support for the UN’s emergency response in Haiti:

“As the world paused today to remember the victims of the earthquake in Haiti, we are reminded of the sacrifices made by people from around the world in the wake of this disaster. Together with our condolences, we offer our support for the men and women of the UN who are working to bring relief to the people of Haiti.

“Immediately after the earthquake, the United Nations’ Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) dispersed $25 million to kick-start urgent Haiti relief efforts. The UN’s leadership is vital to helping Haiti today, and in the weeks and months to come. The UN is providing help with search and rescue, emergency response, medical treatment, food distribution, and peacekeeping.

“The United Nations Foundation’s mission is to support the UN, and in this time of need, we are raising funds for the CERF. We have asked our partners and supporters to join us in helping the UN; the response to this call is proof that the public recognizes the UN’s critical role.

“We thank those who have made contributions. Thousands of grassroots supporters across the country have raised more than $500,000, helping the UN deliver food, water, and medical care to earthquake victims. We also recognize our partners and friends who are helping the UN help Haiti through their generous donations to UN efforts, including Expedia, Inc., Blue Sky Foundation, and Share our Strength.

“Many of our friends in the entertainment community are also engaging their networks to garner support for the UN. Recording artist Usher Raymond IV is asking 30 millio
