"We landed and I found a UN security officer who was transporting a small number of relief workers to the UN logistics office.  He said many of his colleagues were missing and may have been killed.  He seemed in a mild state of shock. There is no cell phone communication but he said they have satellite and internet.  He seemed so happy to meet someone from the UN family that had come to help." 

UN Foundation President Timothy E. Wirth said, "It is clear from these reports there is an urgent need for people everywhere to support the UN's efforts in
